This painting was purchased as a pair with I Pifferari and similarly treats of the pious traditions witnessed annually in Rome. Here noblewomen wash the feet of pilgrims in imitation of Christ’s humble service to his disciples; the scene takes place in the church of SS Trinita dei Pellegrini (Holy Trinity of the Pilgrims).
