  • Puzzle Roma
    16.00 8.00
    The Nova Topografia di Roma by Nolli is, undoubtedly, one of the most remarkable maps about Rome ever made. The large-scale map was designed by Giovanni Battista Nolli, an Italian engineer and architect, in 1748, in collaboration with Giovanni Battista Piranesi, and dedicated to Pope Benedict XIV. The remarkable original size, 176 x 208 cm, was achieved by the juxtaposition of 12 sheets, offering a representation of the city, with vivid detail on its streets, churches and other monuments, including more than 300 churches’ floor plans. Additionally, the map featured an index of the most remarkable buildings of Rome, “Delle Fabbriche più ragguardevoli contenute nella Pianta”. The map quickly became an urban representation model due to its topographical accuracy and planimetric richness. Nolli’s Rome map is still a significant reference to the cartographic production.
