As it stands now, my ongoing investigation and redrawing of the Ichnographia has led to the discovery of a whole new aspect of Piranesi's work that so far no one else has found, namely that the large plan of the Campo Marzio is a readable narrative of ancient Rome's political and architectural history--but in order to grasp this delineated text one must read in unison the individual plans, the plans in relationship to each other, the plans in relation to where the actual buildings really were, and (this is perhaps the most important) the Latin labels Piranesi has given to each plan.
