This interesting map made by the Dutch cartographer P. Van der Aa operating between the 17th and 18th century display us a beautiful cartouche on the left side who embraced a wide macro area with more than 4 Southern Italian regions :Latium, Campania, Abruzzi and Molise . As you can assume from the title of the map, Latium Campania, and Sannium (nowadays province of Benevento and neighbouring areas) have a wide and prominent topographical description as you can see.Moreover are displayed part of the bordering areas nowadays Italian regions like Marche Abruzzi and Molise.
This artistic reproduction of a vintage map was made using modern graphic procedures, but obtaining the results found in the antique copperplate engraving technique, as one can easily find out by lightly rubbing his/her finger on the map. This map, which is an exact reproduction of the original antique, is printed on cotton paper panels which are glued and mounted on a cotton cloth background "a stacchi" (slightly separated from each other), in order to allow for folding and easier transport. Finally, map is water-colored by hand making it a truly unique piece, worthy of the original old print.
