Elders of Este, Italy

Elders of Este, Italy

A photo taken in Este, a town about 75km west of Venice. Bought in a flea market in Villafranca di Verona, seller said it was from 1896.

Este has a history dating back to the Iron Age. It became a Roman colony, was nearly destroyed by Attila the Hun, and later was part of the Austrian Empire. Today, it is twinned with Fredericksburg, Virginia.
