This is an attractive map of central Italy, from Tuscany on the west coast to Umbria on the east coast. The map is centered approximately on Perugia and Lake Trasimeno, with numerous cities, rivers, mountains, and political boundaries shown in nice detail. It is adorned with an allegorical title cartouche depicting a queen, a peacock, a putto with a cornucopia, and Romulus and Remus suckling on the she-wolf.
