This extensive view of the Boboli Gardens shows its main avenue, known as the Viottolone. Flanked by antique statues, it leads to the Piazzale dell'Isolotto, completed by Giulio Parigi (1570-1635) in 1618. In the background to the left, the dome and campanile of Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, can be seen. The drawing is dated '1641', on a bollard to the right, in Cantagallina's typically meticulous hand. A drawing dated '1618', also on a bollard, which interestingly shows a similar view of the Duomo and the Campanile, is in the Fondation Custodia, Paris (Inv. 8688; J. Byam Shaw, The Italian Drawings of the Frits Lugt Collection, Paris, 1983, I, no. 63, III, pl. 78).
