Capuchin Friars Cemetery Eglise Bones Rome Photo 1870's

Vintage anonymous albumen print showing one of the crypt located under the Church of the Immaculate in Rome. The crypts, alls, ceilings are decorated with bones, skeleton, skull, spinal, graves of the monks dead between 1528 and 1870.
This crypt seems to be the Crypt of the leg bones and thigh bones. The photograph is titled Cemeteri dei Cappuccini. I believe it also mentionned Roma 4107 but it's very hard to see.

Tirage albumine anonyme montrant l'interieur d'une des cryptes du cimetiere monumental des peres Capucins situe sous l'église Santa Maria della Concezione a Rome. Les cryptes, murs et plafonds, sont decorees de squelettes, tombes, ossements, cranes... des moines morts entre 1528 et 1870.
Cette crypte semble etre la Crypte des tibias et des fémurs.
