Rome: Piranesi's vision

See unforgettable images of classical and baroque Rome by Italian master printmaker Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–78). Drawn from our stunning exhibition Rome: Piranesi’s vision, these exquisite rare artworks reveal a city of extreme contrasts: grand churches, imposing palaces and monumental ruins peopled by aristocrats, tourists, clergy and beggars.

From St Peter’s Basilica to the Pantheon and the Colosseum, these superb, iconic prints from Piranesi's Vedute di Roma (Views of Rome) capture the very essence of Rome.
