A very compelling c. 1960 pictorial map of Rome, Italy, by Augusto Trabacchi. It covers the 'Eternal City' in incredible detail, revealing individual streets, parks, historic buildings, piazzas, temples, ancient ruins, bridges, rivers and ecclesiastical centers. Prepared with the tourist in mind, this large format perspective view and map attempts to be both a map and a guide to the city of Rome. Important buildings are rendered in profile while less monumental streets and blocks are drawn and labeled in a more standard cartographic manner. Design-wise, this map is akin in spirit to similar 'monumental' maps of Paris issued in the previous decades. Known as the birthplace of western civilization, Rome was the capital of the Roman Empire. The map includes about 500 of Roma's most important monuments and building depicted in profile. The lower left quadrant includes an inset of E.U.R while another inset of Lido di Roma (Ostia) is included below the title. Verso features a street map of Rome with transportation details along with an index of the monuments and principal buildings located on the map.With text in Italian, Spanish, French, German and English, this map was drawn by Augusto Trabacchi and was published by Mauro Gigli with graphics art by Panetto & Petrelli.
