The exhibition Antoine Jean-Baptiste Thomas e il Popolo di Roma at Museo di Roma displays a selection of original drawings by the French painter and lithographer Antoine Jean-Baptiste Thomas (1791-1833).

The drawings were made for the book Un An à Rome et dans ses Environs (A year in Rome and its surroundings) describing and depicting the daily life in Rome as seen by Thomas during his stay between 1817 and 1818.

The Museo di Roma already had various specimens of the book in its collection, both in loose sheets and in bound form, when it was able to acquire the original drawings in 1963.
