Latium cum omnibus suis celebrioribus viis quoad Antiquum et novum ... This map of Lazio is based on the large four sheet map of the region created by Giacomo Filippo Ameti and published by Domenico de Rossi in 1696. The maps are very detailed with many roads noted, including the road from Rome to Naples and the Appian Way, the ancient Roman road from Brindisi to Rome. Titled in both Italian and Latin.
Engraving Information:This artistic reproduction of an antique map was made using the same techniques, materials and instruments used for the original. Map is created from a zinc slab that is mounted on a wooden base and printed by hand, a piece at the time, on a press with a limited production size of 20 pieces each time. Map 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 vintage map.
