How does the most accurate map of Rome, the Nolli map, created in 1772, relate to the city of Rome today?

Each of us were given a vertical transect to study and analyze in the way we chose to do so.  After walking and marking along our given section, we were able to overlay our experience of today with the historic Rome of 1772. The vast interplay of the Uralian wall, and the play between in and out, presented the overwhelming connection and relations within section to the city as a whole.

Initial study


With our section being on the outer edge of the city near the Uralian Wall, it became apparent that our section showed major gateways and connections to and from the city at Nolli’s time, as well as today.
