    For Ciardi, the landscape around Sappada provided the backdrop for an important series of paintings, focussing on the villages, the sloped hills, and the roofs of small houses facing the hills in the background. From 1885, Ciardi spent his summers with his family in the mountains of Trentino, the Dolomites, and in the upland plains of Asiago. These visits, and especially the light, lent a new theme to the artist's work.

    Ciardi stayed in Sappada in 1897, where he produced a number of works, one of which, recorded in the Frugone collection as Paesaggio alpino, Sappada, considered as one of the best landscapes painted by the artist.
