The bridges of Ancient Rome
This exhibit illustrates what remains of Rome’s eight ancient bridges on the Tiber. Original prints, by Piranesi, Vasi and Rossini, depict the bridges in the 18th and 19th centuries, and early photos record them before the changes incurred by the building of the late 19th century flood walls.

In addition to housing an extensive library of books, prints and maps of Rome the Studium Urbis is frequently used as a small lecture hall whose walls are lined with originals and reproductions of the material being discussed. Upon request individual lectures on Roman urbanism, cartography and architectural history are given at the Studium Urbis (capacity 30 seats) to U.S. university groups visiting Rome.
GIAMBATTISTA NOLLI AND ROME
The following volume is built around papers originally presented at the 2003 international conference sponsored by the Studium Urbis and held in Rome: Giambattista Nolli, Imago Urbis, and Rome. The papers explore cartographic traditions leading up to Nolli and go on to explore his contemporaries and those he influenced, as well as follow Nolli into the present.
