Pictorial map of Rome edited by Mauro Gigli, and published by Panetto & Petrelli, c. 1950s. This large and richly detailed map of Rome features illustrated images of about 400 notable monuments throughout the city. Each monument is numbered to correspond with a list on the back, as well as a street map on the back. Includes the Vatican, the Colloseum, panoramic viewpoints, Trevi Fountain, temples, museums, libraries, parks, thermal baths, and much more, each carefully rendered in detail.
North is oriented to the bottom of the map. Inset map at left shows the Citta Giardino (In its original form, the Garden City survived for about thirty years. Around the 1950s, with the great building boom and the construction of the Grande Raccordo Anulare, the image of a small garden city "was replaced by that of a denser and more compact district made up mainly of blocks of flats").
This map was published as a folding tourist map. Title translates to "Map of Rome with over 400 monuments and bus and tram map." Overall very good condition with some mild wear along the fold lines and tiny separations at the fold intersections. Measures approx. 23 x 31.5 inches to the neatline and 27.5 x 35 inches to the paper edges.
