More than 40 prints by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) are on display alongside large-scale maps of Italy's capital, books and plaster casts of Greek and Roman architectural fragments at this exhibit. Come see fantastical images of ruins and experience the artist's fascination with the antiquities of ancient Rome.
