Nolli Map of Rome
Giambattista Nolli's 1748 New Plan of Rome was the first accurate map of Rome and a triumph of eighteenth century science and design. Nolli's meticulous, incredibly detailed survey shows city walls, streets, bridges, ancient ruins, gardens, and cultivated fields, as well as thousands of buildings and their interiors. This exhaustive view of the city has never been equaled, and it remains the single most important cartographic document of Rome ever created.
Available as a lithographic paper print (plain or laminated) 45" x 53", about two thirds of original scale, and as a full-scale 72" x 83" fine art print. The full-scale version makes an unforgettable addition to an office or studio wall. We offer it in two forms: as a single- piece canvas print, or as a pair of overlapping 44" x 72" photo paper prints. The one-piece canvas is very close in appearance to the original 18th century printing. The photo paper two-piece version has extremely rich glossy blacks that some viewers prefer, but requires professional splicing to achieve a virtually seamless final display.
These two versions, the photo print and the canvas print, are special order prints. *Note: Photo finish and canvas print are not returnable.* We can usually fill your order in a few days, but please allow two weeks for delivery.
