A fly through version 2.2 of the model on Vimeo (5:20 minutes). Various landmarks and parts of the city are indicated by subtitles. The itinerary starts over the Tiber River, proceeds past the Circus Maximus, turns north toward the Colosseum and nearby Baths of Trajan. From there we see the Temple of Venus and Rome, Basilica of Maxentius, the Theater of Pompey, and the Pantheon. We return to the city center, flying over the Capitoline and finish our tour by descending into the Roman Forum. Innumerable video itineraries can be generated through the digital model. This is just one example.


Introduction to the exhibition, "Hi-Tech Romans." The video makes heavy use of Rome Reborn 2.2. The exhibition was shown at the Museum Het Valkhof, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (September, 2011 to January, 2012); Rheinisches Landesmuseum Bonn (March 2012 to August 2012); Museon, The Hague, The Netherlands (October, 2012 to August, 2013); and Technopolis, Belgium (October 2013 to August, 2014). The video is posted here with the kind permission of the organizer of the show: Museon, The Hague, The Netherlands.


A short documentary about ancient Rome produced by the Royal Ontario Museum for its Eaton Gallery of Rome, where 500 artifacts from the Roman world are displayed. Like the video developed for "Hi-Tech Romans," this video makes heavy use of version 2.2 of Rome Reborn. Both videos illustrate the utility of the digital model as a resource for museums and schools. The video is posted here with the kind permission of the Royal Ontario Museum.
