      • Giambattista Nolli - Stefano Pozzi, New Topography of Rome
        Apr. 16, 2024

        Giambattista Nolli - Stefano Pozzi, New Topography of Rome

        Est: €150 - €300

        Giambattista Nolli - Stefano Pozzi, New Topography of Rome 114x136 cm - each plate 284x450 mm Reproduction of the most beautiful eighteenth-century maps of Rome by Giambattista Nolli on twelve sheets applied to cotton canvas, as a wall map. Indexes missing. Nolli began the survey in 1736 and engraved the map in 1748, on behalf of Pope Benedetto It was by far the most accurate description of the City produced up to that time and was the first to differentiate with graphic clarity between the archaeological remains and contemporary buildings. Rome appears in its Renaissance form, with vast areas within the ancient walls still occupied by villas with extensive fields, orchards and gardens. The Colosseum is located in open countryside while the Circus Maximus and the Forum are shown in an unearthed state. The lower sheets are almost entirely occupied by a rich decoration meticulously engraved by Stefano Pozzi (Rome 1699 - 1768). In the lower left corner there is a composition of classical monuments including the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine, the Forum and Trajan's Column, in front of which are allegorical figures and at the bottom the she-wolf with Romulus and Remus below shape of broken ancient statues; in the center dedication to Benedict XIV; the lower right corner describes the allegorical representation of the Church sitting in front of Michelangelo's set of buildings on the Capitoline Hill.

        NOLLI. Nuova pianta di Roma data in luce da Giambattista Nolli l'anno 1748. NOLLI, Giovanni Battista. Nuova pianta di Roma data in luce da Giambattista Nolli l'anno 1748. Roma, 1748 Acquaforte e bulino. 32 fogli uniti insieme per un totale di 1800 x 2810 mm, intelati. Piccoli margini. La composizione comprende la mappa della città e due indici, Indice dei numeri e Indice Alfabetico della Pianta. Nella parte inferiore compaiono scene figurate e allegoriche: al centro, la dedica al Papa Benedetto XIV e il titolo “La Nuova Topografia di Roma”. Qualche lieve brunitura e sporadico foxing. Spettacolare carta di Roma, capolavoro epocale della cartografia. La mappa de Nolli è una pianta icnografica della città, in contrapposizione alla prospettiva a volo d'uccello, stile di rappresentazione cartografica dominante fino ad allora. La mappa raffigura la città con dettagli sorprendenti: il Nolli ottenne questo risultato utilizzando tecniche di rilevamento scientifico, accurati disegni di base e incisioni minuziosamente preparate, una scala architettonica precisa. La mappa di Nolli è la prima mappa accurata di Roma dall'antichità e cattura la città al culmine delle sue conquiste culturali e artistiche. La mappa è composta da dodici lastre di rame squisitamente incise che misurano, combinate, 176 cm per 208 cm. La mappa include quasi otto miglia quadrate della città densamente costruita e del terreno circostante ed identifica, tra l’altro, quasi duemila siti di importanza culturale. La mappa del Nolli è una straordinaria conquista tecnica che rappresenta una pietra miliare nell'arte e nella scienza della cartografia. Rilievi moderni e sofisticate immagini satellitari hanno confermato l'accuratezza della mappa del Nolli entro il più piccolo margine di errore. La mappa non solo registra le strade, le piazze e gli spazi urbani pubblici di Roma, ma delinea anche centinaia di interni di edifici con planimetrie dettagliate. La mappa è stata utilizzata nella pianificazione governativa della città di Roma fino agli anni '70; è stato utilizzato come mappa di base per tutta la mappatura e la pianificazione romana fino a quella data.Luigi Ficacci 22, John Wilton-Ely 1007 (1095-5), Millard Architectural Collection, Italian and Spanish Books, p. 234-239.

        Est: €5,000 - €8,000

        Vollständige Ausgabe des fantastischen Nolli-Plans von 1748 -- Nolli, Giovanni Battista. Nuova pianta di Roma. Kupferstichplan der Stadt Rom. 2 Kupfertafeln (Titel und "Avviso"), 4 Kupfertafeln (Index) sowie 12 doppelblattgroße Kupferstich-Segmentkarten, 1 doppelblattgroße Übersichtskarte, 4 Kupfertafeln (Index). Plattengröße der Kartensegmente 43 x 67 cm. die 8 Index-Tafeln (einfach) und die 13 Karten sind in den Schnittkanten oben (doppelt) nummeriert von 1-34. 49,5 x 37,5 cm. Halbpergament um 1900 mit goldgeprägtem RTitel, breiten Pergament-Ecken und Marmorpapier-Deckelbezug (nur minimale Abschabungen). Rom, Nolli, 1748. -- Brunet IV, 95 ("assez recherché"). – Der in seinem Detailreichtum teilweise noch bis heute unübertroffene Stadt- und Grundrissplan der Ewigen Stadt von Giovanni Battista Nolli (1692-1756), der nicht nur die Straßen und Gebäudekomplexe bis hin zu jeder hervorstehenden Mauerzunge dokumentierte, sondern auch gewissermaßen in die öffentlichen Gebäude, vor allem die Kirchen hineinging, auch auch die Innenräume zu vermessen. So finden sich auf dem Plan nahezu alle Grundrisse der antiken Tempel und der weit über hundert Kirchenbauten vom Frühchristentum über die Romanik bis hin zur Renaissance und dem Barock minutiös wiedergegeben. -- -- Der aus Como stammende Nolli war als Ingenieur und Architekt ausgebildet worden, arbeitete zunächst als Stadtvermesser in Mailand am örtlichen Kataster, bis er dann nach Rom weiterzog. Dort entwickelte er die Idee einer exakten Kartierung der Stadt und deren Darstellung in einem großen Kupferstichplan, den er Benedikt XIV. widmete. Der Papst hatte ihn ermächtigt, auch alle privaten Grundstücke, darunter Paläste, Klöster, Gärten und weitere Liegenschaften kraft eines offiziellen Mandats zu betreten und zu vermessen. So finder sich jede Straße, jede Allee, aber auch jeder Feldweg, jede Villa, jedes Haus und jeder Schuppen, der etwa auf den Weinbergen vor der Porta Pia stand - mit genauester Bezeichnung und Angabe der Flurstücke und der Weinbergbesitzer: "Villa Altieri", "Sito del Circo di Flora", "Villa Mandosi", "Villa Barberini", "Vigna Lancelotti", "Vig. de PP. della Minerva" und vieles, vieles mehr. -- -- Zusammen mit seinem Sohne, Carlo Nolli und Giuseppe Vasi entstand bis 1748 der monumentale Plan, der auch die neue Gliederung der Stadt unter Benedikt in 14 Bezirke zeigte, die bis auf den heutigen Tag im barocken Stadtbild sichtbar blieben. -- Die großartigen Vignetten zeigen ein Capriccio der bedeutendsten römischen Bauwerke mit der Trajanssäule, dem Tempio dei Castori auf dem Foro Romano, dem Konstantins- und Septimius Severusbogen, dem Kolosseum, sowie dem Kapitol mit den Bauten Michelangelos und der Personifikation der Roma. – Vorhanden ist hier die vollständige Ausgabe aller Segmente, mit dem doppelblattgroßen Übersichtsplan, Titelei und den acht ausführlichen Index-Tafeln, die die Orientierung leicht ermöglichen. Die zwölf doppelblattgroßen Kompartimente ergeben zusammen einen Plan von ca. 171,5 x 206,5 cm. Die Bindung in Buchform war dafür verantwortlich, dass dieses Exemplar des fantastischen Romplans bis heute nahezu unbeschadet überlebt hat, wie nur ganz wenige Exemplare. Vier der Indexblätter mit winzigen Lochschabungen im weißen Rand unten rechts, lediglich der Übersichtsplan leicht gebräunt und gering sprenkelfleckig, die Kartenkompartimente nahezu ohne Stock- oder Fingerfleckchen, außergewöhnlich wohlerhalten und frisch sowie bemerkenswert breitrandig.

        NOLLI, Giambattista (c.1692-1756) - La nuova topografia di Roma. Roma: 1748. Nolli's famous map of Rome is considered one of the masterpieces of urban cartography. Fundamental for the study of Roman cartography, it remained a model for all the maps of Rome until the twentieth century and it was the first to distinguish between magnetic and astronomical north and to differentiate with graphic clarity between archaeological remains and contemporary buildings. Giovan Battista Nolli from Como made use of the collaboration of the engravers Carlo Pozzi, Pietro Campana and Carlo Nolli (his son), and for the cartoons, of the painter Stefano Pozzi. This copy is exceptionally enclosed by commentary unlike the copies that are usually found on the market. . The very large engraved map of Rome with commentary measures, (1735 x 2720mm). The internal part only (1735 x 2010mm). Printed on a series of sheets then joined together and applied on cloth (some losses and heavilly restored). IT NOLLI, Giambattista (c.1692-1756) - La nuova topografia di Roma. Roma: 1748. La celebre mappa di Roma del Nolli è considerata come uno dei capolavori della cartografia urbana. Fondamentale per lo studio della cartografia romana, rimase un modello per tutte le piante di Roma fino al XX secolo e fu la prima a distinguere tra nord magnetico e astronomico e a differenziare con chiarezza grafica tra i resti archeologici e gli edifici contemporanei. Il comasco Giovan Battista Nolli si avvalse della collaborazione degli incisori Carlo Pozzi, Pietro Campana e Carlo Nolli (suo figlio), e per le vignette, del pittore Stefano Pozzi. Questo esemplare è eccezionalmente racchiuso da commentario a differenza delle copie che si trovano solitamente in commercio. La grandissima mappa di Roma incisa in rame misura incluso il commentario, (1735 x 2720mm). La sola parte interna (1735 x 2010mm). Stampata su una serie di fogli poi uniti fra loro e intelaiata (alcune perdite e restauri anche di grandi dimensioni).

(1,708 x 2,061 mm) on 1,740 x 2,065mm sheet (scattered few tiny ink stains, some segments with very pale toning, laid down on linen); framed (unexamined out of frame).  The finest of the eighteenth-century plans of Rome and the first plan of the city based upon geodetic principles. With Rocque's plan of London and Bretez's plan of Paris, Nolli's plan ranks as one of the greatest eighteenth-century plans of any European city. Rome appears in its essentially Renaissance form with large areas within the ancient walls still occupied by villas with extensive fields, orchards and gardens. The Coliseum, for example, still stands in virtually open country. Many important ancient sites, such as the Circus Maximus and the Forum, are shown in an unearthed state. The lower sheets are almost entirely taken up by lavish, finely engraved ornamentation in the style of Piranesi. In the lower left corner is a montage of classical landmarks, including the Coliseum, Arch of Constantine, Forum, and Trajan's Column, before which are allegorical figures including Romulus and Remus in the form of broken ancient statuary. The lower right corner contains an allegorical representation of the Church seated before Michelangelo's assemblage of buildings on the Capitoline Hill. The vignettes of allegorical figures are after Stefano Pozzi. The plates for the assembled map were originally issued in book form, with title and index leaves, not present here. Frutaz CLXIXa.
