  Famous people of Rome

No other city like Rome had a propagandist of the image as Piranesi. A more capillary, more « impressive», more cited image, that holds no sagging of interest from the middle of the eighteenth century to the present day. Not even Venice with all the citizens of Giovan Battista, the Canalettos, the Bellotto. Piranesi stated (perhaps exaggerating) that he « could pull at least 4,000 plates from every single matrix of the Views » (of Rome), considered his most successful commercial work. An « average of more than 2 matrices per month », « a new matrix with a view of Rome every two months », and certain « twigs »made one per day. One of the most important one of Villa Medici.
