Handmade to order
By the mid 18th century, almost all of Rome's notable landmarks had been built, including the Colosseum, St Peter's Basilica, Castel Sant'Angelo, all of the piazzas, etc.
There are two handy legends on the left and right that will help you identify all of the various buildings, palaces, churches and monuments in Rome at the time.
In the bottom left and right are truly stunning engravings of St Peter's Basilica and façade of the Basilica di Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, the Trevi Fountain and Santa Maria Maggiore - then the finest architectural achievements of 18th century Rome.
This map looks great at 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large. Please note that at 18x12 inches the writing on this map is very small and I would recommend getting a larger map.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 120 inches (310cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm) version of this map.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your favourite landmark or the street where you grew up! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain place is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone from Rome or who is interested in the history of the Italian capital.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
