Mariana Starke in Italian countryside near Rome - between early May, the 1790's, morning and early May, the 1810's, morning

from Information and directions for travellers on the continent, 5th edition, pages 165fn:

 

The lower classes of the Roman people go annually, on the first Sunday in May, to the Valley of Egeria; where they carouse and crown themselves with flowers; thence returning to Rome, like Bacchanals, dancing and singing to various instruments of music. This festival commences with the dawn, and ends about mid-day.
