ROMA. Titolo per 1 Azione da L.100. Serie 1. blue, black. No 9319. Small tear at the top and tiny bit of paper missing. Folds. Formed Rome, 1871. Most decorative border shows the Colosseum (although we do not think the company built that!) and other historical buildings and ancient ruins. Also a scenic view and the she-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus. The company constructed public and private buildings in Rome and the Italian provinces. Also active in buying prominent buildings in the city, presumably for reconstruction/renovation. In 1872 for instance, it purchased the Villa Poniatowski/Villa Giulia, currently home of the National Etruscan Museum.
