This commemorative drawing was made on Ricci's death in 1730 by his friend, the architect Filippo Juvarra. It is an architectural fantasy, a capriccio, meticulously executed as a work of art in its own right, and one of a wave of imaginary tomb designs produced in Italy in the early eighteenth century.
