Scipione Gold Dinner Plate
The name Scipione has a double meaning. It dates back to Scipione Borghese, the early-17th Century Cardinal who was patron of the famous art collection at the Villa Borghese. It also refers to the infamous Roman general and statesmen, Scipio Africanus, whom at the end of the 3rd Century BC defeated Hannibal of Carthage. Both figures have an association is the colour red and gold which adorn the splendid Scipione dinner collection.
