‘Rome Reborn’ is an international initiative to offer a rare glimpse of ancient Rome when this city was in all its glory. It’s a 3D digital model of the Eternal City in 320AD, the time when the city is believed to be the most developed with a population of about 1-2 million people and with major Christian churches just starting to be built.
With the aim to present information and theories about how the city looked at that time, the Rome Reborn team blended graphics, videos, narratives, and magnificent 3D animations.

It can be used to teach students or the general public about how the city looked. The tour takes the viewer to discover major attractions like Circus Maximus, the Pantheon, the Colosseum, the theatre of Pompey and many other iconic locations. The tour will also take the viewer to Palatine Hill, showing the huge palaces while looking down on the entire grand city.
The model can be used to teach students about incredible aqueducts, how well the buildings were illuminated, how the buildings functioned in terms of heating and ventilation, illumination, and a lot more.
This model of the 25 square km city will not only be used by academics studying it, but will also be used in video games, print publications, broadcast television, and video documentaries displayed in museums and special exhibitions.
