Nicola Palizzi depicts the military parade that occured in the presence of King Ferdinando II of Bourbon on 18 December, 1856. The specific location is the Campo di Marte of Naples, near the Capodochino area, where the Bourbon militia would gather yearly. On this occasion, a failed assassination attempt was made on the king’s life. Nicola utilizes thick brushstrokes which reflect the influence of the Barbizon painters of France, favoring the perception of vision over the clear description of each object.
