Our Story

Rome Reborn VR apps and videos are now available for purchase! Platforms supported include PCs and laptops (Mac, Windows) as well as VR (GearVR, Oculus).* For more details, please see our website at www.romereborn.org

Rome Reborn® is an international initiative started in 1996 with the goal of creating an interactive 3D digital model illustrating the urban development of ancient Rome in the year A.D. 320. At that time, Rome had reached the peak of its population, and major Christian churches were just beginning to be built. Right after this date, few new civic buildings were constructed, since the capital of the empire moved to Constantinople. Much of what survives of the ancient city dates to this period, making reconstruction less speculative than it must, unavoidably, be for earlier phases.

The Rome Reborn® digital model has been completely rebuilt three times from 1996 to 2018. Version 2.0 was used to create several videos that are on Vimeo and Youtube. Since their publication in 2011, they have had over 3 million views.

The latest version is Rome Reborn® 3.0. It has been optimized for real-time use in Virtual Reality applications. Flyover Zone Productions is our partner responsible for developing apps and videos using parts of the city model and enhancing them with commentary by leading scholars.
