|Tito Corbella (1885-1966) Dover Press|
Fiuggi is known for its drinkable mineral water which as far back as the reign of Pope Boniface VIII (8th C.) has been the water of choice to dissolve and remove kidney stones. Pope Boniface ordered this water 190 times during his reign. (Oh those Vatican record keepers). And even Michelangelo was reported to have said after visiting the spa (16th C.), that kidney stones were, "The only stones I did not love."
The artist, Tito Corbella, was known as an exceptional portrait painter and Art Deco commercial artist, also created Italian military propaganda posters during World War I. Posters are commissioned for many reasons. If you click on the poster, you can get a closer look. This works for all of them.
I've added a link to more information and photographs of Fiuggi. And should you wish to try Fiuggi mineral water, both sparkling and still (no gaza), it is for sale on Amazon for $6 a bottle.
