This vigorous watercolour drawing, full of life and movement, is characteristic of Lewis's best work in his early maturity.

In a wide sun-bathed square various types of an Italian crowd are depicted on a festal day - priests and pilgrims, porters and pedlars, mingling with men, women and children in a panorama of vibrant colour.
