The painting came to the Pinacoteca in 1860, when it was acquired through exhibition funding. The subject takes its origin from the first years of the iconography of the Risorgimento.

The artist depicts a news story. The choice of the genre is less important than the reality of the event represented. In the same period, the artist would carry out other paintings with a similar subject, responding to market requests.
