Notes The building of the Theatre of Marcello was started by Julius Caesar and complete by Augustus in 13 BC, and dedicated to his heir Marcellus. Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi's example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. In turn, as they were carried home by Northern Europeans on the Grand Tour, the etchings fuelled worldwide interest in classical architecture.
