Although the influences of Piranesi can be seen, Zocchi pays more attention to everyday life in the city, including boatmen, swimmers, knife-grinders, promenaders and coachmen. The last four plates depict the festivals of the city, including the Chariot Race at Piazza Santa Maria Novella. The series was first published in 1744 and, like this edition, was dedicated to Maria Theresa of Austria, whose husband was Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor and Duke of Tuscany.
