Thanks to the activities of the people involved in the “Rome Reborn” project, we can discover ancient Rome from 320 CE in virtual reality or on a computer.

Since the mid-1990s, nearly 50 scientists and IT specialists have been involved in the ambitious project. Rome in the virtual world is to have 7,000 buildings and monuments; It is certainly the largest project of this type, which provides more places to visit using the latest technologies. At the moment, we can see the Basilica of Maxentius, the Forum Romanum, the Pantheon, the Imperial Forums, and the Imperial Palace up close and from the inside.

Scientists also provided a 2-hour flight over ancient Rome, and those who admire Rome will stop at 35 specific places, including imperial forums, Circus Maximus and the mausoleums of Augustus and Hadrian.

Why did scientists choose 320 CE to recreate the city? One of the scientists explains that from this period we have the most data about the city and its buildings, then Rome reached its peak development.

If you would like to see an excerpt of the team’s work, there is nothing easier than here and filling out the form. We will be able to visit the Forum Romanum for free.
