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.
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
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.
