(en) Photographer Brogi. Certosa de Pavia, Italy.

The Italian photographer Brogi had one of the biggest studios of Italy (just behind Alinari brothers).
 Studios in:

  •  The first studio in Corso Tintori, in Rome in 1864.
  • Florence. Via Tornabuoni 1.
  • Naples. Via Chiatamone 19 bis.
  • Rome. Via del Corso 419.

This picture has a blindstamp on it, so this means the photo was taken on the 1870's. This vintage photo represents the calm of a monestry, Certosa de Pavia monestry, where we can see a monk at the back, posing for the picture.

Giacomo Brogi (1822–1881), an Italian engraver based in Florence, became one of the most renowned photographers of that city. He learned photography from the scientist Tito Puliti and in 1856 opened a studio with an unknown partner. In 1859 or 1860 he established his own studio, specializing at first in portrait photography. Brogi soon began to produce views and other subjects, and in 1863 he published his first catalog. His business eventually expanded to include studios and associates throughout Italy. Brogi was a founder and the first vice president of the Italian Photographic Society.

    ....Some of the photographers featured, such as James Robertson, Felix Bonfils and Wilhelm Hammerschmidt, settled and established studios in Istanbul, Beirut or Cairo, to deal directly with the increasing numbers of travellers to the area. Other photographers, like Francis Frith, Frank Mason Good, Giacomo Brogi and Francis Bedford, undertook extensive and laborious expeditions to acquire their negatives, which they sold to the home market from catalogues, or, in the case of the Italian Brogi and the English Bedford, published in magnificent albums ...........

    Ver Italia y morir: fotografía y pintura en la Italia del siglo XIX


    .........Los fotógrafos de esta época adoptan el proceso del negativo vidrio al colodión y del positivo sobre papel albuminado, de un uso más fácil que el daguerreotipo o el calotipo. Proliferan entonces en las grandes ciudades, talleres cuya producción estaba ante todo destinada a los turistas. Carlo Naya en Venecia, los hermanos Alinari en Florencia, Robert MacPherson y Gioacchino Altobelli en Roma, Giorgio Sommer y Alphonse Bernoud en Nápoles, por citar solo los más célebres, proponen a los aficionados imágenes-recuerdos: vistas de conjunto de las ciudades, monumentos, obras maestras de los museos..........
