Pencil sketch depicting a group of elderly internees. It appears that Poggi used this sketch to complete a charcoal drawing of the same group of men. Many of the men are shown holding canes or crutches. The sketch is likely a caricature of some of the internees interned with artist Vincent Poggi as Poggi has written names on some of the men. The man with circular glasses, second from the left in the foreground is identified as "Cerini". The man next to "Cerini" is identified as the vice consul. The gentleman at the far right, centre is identified as fellow artist Guido Nincheri. In the right foreground is written "Mancini." See LDICEA2011.0023.0007.
