Filippo Belli (1836-1927) was active mainly as a supplier of images depicting the Roman countryside meant to be used by artists, but he was also a documenter of the Eternal City’s cultural heritage. His work still awaits a proper study, and reconstructing it will shed more light on Italian historical photography.
