The text of a lengthy speech delivered in 1835 by Marchese Luigi Biondi (1776-1835), President of the Pontifica Accademia Romana di Archeologia, describing the principal state rooms of the Lateran Palace in Rome, rebuilt for Pope Sixtus V by the architect Domenico Fontana in 1586-9, and the rolling programme of restoration for the palace put in hand in the early 1830s during the pontificate of Pope Gregory XVI. The speech was printed at the printing press of the Ospizio Apostolico di S.Michele, where orphan boys were instructed in trades including printing and typefounding.
