Title : [ Lago di Sabaudia / Baia d'Argento ] Manuscript map on paper..
Map maker : ANONYMOUS.
Date : Italy, c.1700.
Size : 20.1 x 29.8 inches. / 51.0 x 75.8 cm.
Colouring : In attractive strong original colours.

Description :A large and decorative manuscript map on paper, oriented west to the top. In the center "Lago di Santa Maria", which is presently called "Baia D'Argento" and is part of "Lago di Sabaudia". To the left the Via Sabaudio connection the Bay with St. Felice, which is shown in the upper left hand corner.
To the left Mount Cicero. The map is filled with cork oaks tree, for which the area is still famous. Several mansions are also drawn in. The lower part of the map has a numbered key. Lower right corner a compass card.
The "Baia D'Argento" (literally "Silver Bay") is a residential area located inside the "Circeo National Park", right under the Circeo mount at the end of the Sabaudia lake. Circeo National Park is one of the most important Italian national park.
Many people say that the name "Baia D'Argento" comes from the silver color that the leaves of the many cork oaks (the area is quite rich of this type of tree) gets during fall, especially on late afternoon or early morning.
The area is rich of villas, many of them have been (and many are still) owned by celebrities from the showbiz or even politicians, since from the seventies, when the area was starting to get famous. Going through the streets that are inside the "Baia D'Argento" is very pleasant, especially in a few places. Here you can see how almost all villas are perfectly integrated in the surroundings and almost all of them do not destroy the beauty of the natural landscape of one of the most important Italian national park.

Condition : Manuscript map, pen and brown ink, with wash colour. A few repaired tears just entering in the map, all together in very good condition.
