The Discovery of Piranesi's Final Project
Stephen Lauf


There is a unique area of the Ichnographia Campus Martius where the quality of delineation is uncharacteristically faulty. Several instances of imperfect drawing appear within the Vatican valley, where the circus of Caligula and Nero stood in ancient times and the basilica of Saint Peter stands today. No where else throughout Piranesi's large plan of imperial Rome do such graphic defects occur.
