"Alcune di Archi Trionfali, ed alti Monumenti inalzati da Romani parte de quali si Veggono in Roma, e parte per L´Italia desegnati ed incisi dal Cavalier Gio. Battista Piranesi"

At the beginning of the 1740s, when the young Giovanni Battista Piranesi returned from Venice to Rome, still under the artistic influence of Marco Ricci, Tiepolo and Canaletto, he started his small sized series „Vedute di Archi Trionfali…“. The first part, as the name suggested, focuses on depicting the many arch monuments in Rome, the second part are mainly images of major monuments of the various regions in Italy.
