The Drawings of the Ruins of Rome, or Disegni de le ruine di Roma e come anticamente erono, comprises forty-six pen-and-ink panoramas of ancient Roman ruins as observed in the sixteenth century with descriptive captions. Many of the illustrations are preceded by artistically reconstructed views of the same buildings. The work was once attributed to French engraver and landscape architect Étienne Dupérac who lived in Rome until 1578 but is now credited to an anonymous Roman artist. The volume was produced in Rome and is dated to around 1574-1575.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
