The romantic scene of Hayez’s The Kiss contains within itself ideals such as love of the homeland and political-military commitment. The young man who kisses the girl carries a dagger and is about to leave with his foot on the first step of the ladder. He is a young patriot who greets his beloved before going to fight the Habsburg invader. In the shadows, on the left, hides the menacing and disturbing presence of a faceless enemy.
The tiles of the jigsaw puzzle are contained in a natural linen bag and packaged in an exclusive box to protect it during the transport.
