The University of Oregon and Raven Maps have teamed together to bring you the finest ever reproduction of the renowned Nolli Map of Rome. Vastly superior in cartographic detail, size, and quality of remastering to any previous single-sheet print of the Nolli Map, this is a true collector's piece.

Perfect for the home or office of anyone with sophisticated tastes and a discriminating eye, it is a delight to Rome enthusiasts, historians, architects, and map lovers alike. Beautiful as well as functional, the map works equally well for the modern traveller who wishes to navigate the city as it was in 1748, and still largely remains today. Despite dramatic advances in cartographic technology, no modern single sheet map of the city provides the same level of detail of the Eternal City.

Details

A small, dedicated team of award-winning cartographers and architects at the University of Oregon have meticulously removed 18th century printing imperfections and blemishes due to age -- barely noticeable but critical when examined with a trained eye. The digitally remastered map, rendered as a single, uniform document without seams, is the first of its type. Created with 21st century technology, it rigorously honors the cartographic clarity and integrity of the display as drawn manually by Nolli over the course of nearly a decade.

The map is large. At approximately two-thirds the original size, it measures 45 inches by 52.6 inches (114cm x 133cm). It is printed at a scale of 1:4,500, where 1 inch equals 375 feet.

Produced to the highest standards in mind, the edition is printed with stochastic screening on 100 lb Finch Fine paper. Stochastic screening is recognized for its superior representation of fine lines and tonal values, and is commonly used for printing high quality black and white photography. The process (in which printed dots are spread randomly throughout the image area instead of in a grid pattern) yields a warmer, less mechanical result perfect for a map of this vintage. A process black ink was used for the printed area and an antique tint lends the map an elegant look and feel.

Map Index

In its original printing, Nolli included an index of 1,320 sites in the city. The complete index is accessible on this website. By referencing a number on the map, you can determine the name, type of structure, location, period of construction, architect and more (e.g. St. Peter's NN1285).
