Lettering

La sera. Tempo è d'affaticar mentre il sol dura, Poichè la notte ogni animale ha pace. Giunge la sera, onde il villan sen giace Fin che ottenebra il ciel la notte oscura. G. Zocchi inv. ; I. Wagner scp. Merceria Ven.a. C.P.E.S.

Lettering note

Translation of the Italian verses: The time to work is while the sun lasts, for at night every animal is at rest. The evening arrives, at which the land-worker lies down until dark night obscures the sky
