Description

A man lying in bed with his wife is visited by two solemn and imposing ghosts cloaked in shrouds as two children look on from a smaller bed on the side.

Angelo Targhini and Leonida Montanari were members of the Carbonari—a network of secret revolutionary societies—who got arrested for having attempted to kill an undercover agent. They were sentenced to death for lese-majesty and beheaded in Rome, in 1825.

The caption reads in the original Italian: Miserere di me ! Voi qui Targhini e Montanari !
