THE LARGEST DIGITAL RECONSTRUCTION OF ALL TIMES

R O M E

THE RESURRECTION OF ANCIENT ROME IN THE MOST COMPLEX AND BEAUTIFUL 3D MODEL! WORLDWIDE!

In 2017, we were assigned with the reconstruction of Ancient Rome in 3 time phases (!) for a renowned exhibition. For the project, we collaborated closely with historians, archeologists and experts, thus the result represents the latest scientific status.
There has never been a 3D model of Ancient Rome before reconstructed on such high level of attention to detail and completeness.
More than 46.000 houses as well as various temples, monuments and arenas were virtually rebuilt by our talented 3D artists for this ambitious project. Even roof tiles, windows and facades were reproduced as accurately as possible .

An enormous effort – for us as history fans and 3D experts in the reconstruction of historical settings, however, an intriguing challenge and true affair of the heart!

The city is hardly recognizable any more: all splendor gone,the ancient monuments in ruins. Yet, in the distance, the outlines of a new, giant building: the St. Peter’s Basilica, marking a new era of power by the Popes.

Unique on a world-wide scale

As no other reconstruction of Rome before, the model represents an authentic impression of the Eternal City’s past on profound historical basis while reflecting all of its fascinating beauty!

Accordingly, it has been basis for a number of high-level films and documentaries so far, e.g. on the legendary chariot races in ancient Rome, displayed at the Smithsonian Channel, Channel 4 as well as ZDF (Germany) and ARTE (France).
