This calm view of the Bay of Naples, bathed in the warmth of the evening light, features several well-known buildings, including the Palazzo Donn’Anna on the left and the Castel Sant’Elmo on the hilltop, with Vesuvius beyond. Fabris is likely to have painted the picture to supply the demand for topographical views of the city.
