the footsteps of an XVIIIth century traveller
The 1765 View
The view is made of 12 (6x2) very large plates to be tiled pasted.
In this site it is split into 72 sections: 12 numbers from left
to right (1-12) for the width and 6 letters from top to bottom (A-F) for
the height. You may wish to compare Vasi's view with his 1781 Map and with a
view from S. Pietro in Montorio (very close to the point from which this
view was taken) of the end of the XIXth century. Note: the Grand View shows most of the monuments of Rome, but not all of them. See the list of links to pages showing monuments not mentioned in the View.
