Augusto Alberici, Roman painter and antiquarian, born in September 1846 in Trastevere in Rome, from a father from Gaeta, who was a sea captain, and a Roman mother.
A pupil of Professor Toglietti and of the Accademia di San Luca, he found, at the beginning of his career, the valid support of two protectors whom, he recalls with gratitude, Eng. Gio. Battista Marotti and Giovanni Frontini.
His home is now sumptuous and full of a gallery of ancient art objects and a numismatic collection. As a painter, he especially cultivated the landscape and the historical genre.
Among his most praised paintings, we remember: “The Snow”; “Anticoli”; “The return from the countryside”; “The battle of Crescentino fought by Emanuele Filiberto”; “The passage of Julius Caesar to the Rubicon”.
