Supplemental information

 
Pompeo Bondini was born in Ancona in 1828 which at that time was in the Papal States. In around 1846 he moved to Rome where he frequented the scientific faculty of l'UniversitÓ "La Sapienza" until 1851.
 
During these years Bondini was drawn to photography and published his only photographic work - a beautiful volume "Della Via Appia e dei Sepolcri Romani" that contained 42 salted paper prints made from calotype negatives. It is one of the earliest publications in which the photographs are an integral part of the written text.
 
In 1856 he asked for papal authorization to photograph the frescos of Rafael to the Loggias of the Vatican. One year later he was the manager of photography of the "Commercial Society in the Elba" and he asked for authorization to take photographs in southern Italy.
 
In 1870 he moved to Istanbul in Turkey and news of him continues until 1893.
