Note on artwork:
The publication comprises a series of watercolour images created in situ by the artist Robert Goff whilst on his travels through Italy. The text, by the artist's wife Clarissa De Hochepied Goff, was to act as an accompaniment to the sketches with which this book is illustrated. The Cappella or L'Oratorio dei Pellegrini (Chapel or Oratory of the Pilgrims) was originally used by pilgrims who wanted to pay homage to St. Francis who was from Assisi. It is known for the many beautiful frescoes on the walls of the interior.
