The picture shows a woman sitting in a chair in front of a shop on a road. She is smiling and reading an open daily newspaper with the headline "Italy surrenders!" printed on the front page. Behind her are a man and a boy, both interestedly looking over her shoulder. The woman's left hand rests on the handle of a pram to her left, in which a child is sucking on a bottle. On her right sits a dog, attentively looking at the camera.
