[Rome], Nella libraria Michel’ Angelo, e Pier Vincenzo Rossi
The area encompassing Rome has been occupied by humans for over 10,000 years. The city of Rome was established on the banks of the river Tiber in the 8th century BC. At the height of the Roman Empire, in the 2nd century AD, over a million people lived there. When the empire fell the population dropped to below 50,000 inhabitants. Today almost three million people live in the city of Rome and up to ten million tourists visit every year. This early 18th century engraving shows the monuments and buildings at the centre of ancient Rome; some of which remain to this day.
