Catalogue Note

This large-scale map of the Campus Martius was included in Piranesi's book Campus Martius (BAL RIBA 2551), which described the history and the present state of the area; this map showed the area restored to its former glory, and was based on the marble fragments of the Severan plan of the city, which had been reassembled by Nolli in the 1740s. The plan was dedicated to Robert Adam, and Piranesi had worked on it from 1757 (this date appears on plate 5) until the publication of the book in 1762.
