Colored engraving: 230 x 335mm on a sheet: 269 x 374mm.002. Atlas of the Capuchins of the eighteenth century. Milan, 1712. Andalusiae Province. Performed by Giovanni Batista da Casinno, Simone Durelli and Ambrosio Ramellati. Giovanni Batista da Casinno, Capuchin friar and natural mathematician of Alexandria, at the request of the General of the Agostino Order of Tisana.
Five years of work, Cassino and Durelli needed to make the engraving plates. The informational contents are oriented to locate the counties linked to the order of the Capuchins, pointing out the places through groups of architectures according to the range of importance. The richness of the ornament elements such as billboards, wind roses, network of directions, figure of the boat, Marian devotional emblem, etc. are vivid in the contrast of coloration and shading. The city of Granada stands for the Capuchin headquarters as headwaters, followed by other minor entity centers.
