    It is still unclear when the young Van Baburen arrived in Italy and which cities he visited before he temporarily settled in Parma in 1615 (Franits 2013A, p. 6). It is possible that Van Baburen travelled to Italy around 1614, rather than 1612/13, and took up residence in Rome between 1615 and 1616, after a brief sojourn in Parma.
