Virtual Rome Was Not Built In A Day

Interesting collabrative project between several universities in the United States and Italian authorities to creat a virtual three dimensional model of Rome that will evolve over time. We provide the following excerpt from the first paragraph of the project website description below:

"History. From 1997 to 2007 the UCLA Cultural Virtual Reality Laboratory (CVRLab), the UCLA Experiential Technology Center (ETC), the Reverse Engineering (INDACO) Lab at the Politecnico di Milano, and the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) of the University of Virginia collaborated on a project to create a digital model of ancient Rome as it appeared in the late antiquity. The notional date of the model is June 21, 320 A.D."
