A monumental plan of Rome, dedicated to Pope Benedetto XIV. Engraved by Rocco Pozzi, Pietro Campana E Carlo Nolli, while the cartouche is by the painter Stefano Pozzi. Giambattista Nolli Lived in Rome and was a surveyor and architect who devoted his life to recording the architectural and urban foundations of the city. The result of his records was "La Pianta Grande di Roma" which is one of the most revealing and artistic plans ever. The map depicts the city of Rome in great detail and shows nearly 2000 culturally significant sites. The map is noted for its precise architectural scale. This is the first accurate map of Rome.
