Picture of folklore scene in Neapolitan setting. A friar, a bersagliere, some men, women and children watch a young couple in traditional costumes dancing the tarantella under a simple pergola, accompanied by a tambourine and a guitar, played by a man and by a woman, also in traditional dress. A humble peddler, seated in a big basket, is smoking a pipe. Next to him is a plate, a bottle of wine and a bunch of radishes. Further in front two children, one lying down and the other one seated. On the threshold a woman of the people has a basket on her hip. To the right of the picture two men are seated at a table playing cards. One of them is drinking from a bottle
