Welcome to

Digital Piranesi's Pantheon

volume 17 page 31.jpg

Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) was an Italian artist well known for his etching of Rome buildings and imaginary prisons. Piranesi's works provide us a good perspective of the historical and environmental of 18th century Rome. At the Center for Digital Humanities (CDH from UofSC), we collect and access the records of the past then transformed it into this new Information Age. With several etchings of the Pantheon from Piranesi, we are able to create a Virtual Reality game to resemble Piranesi’s Pantheon etchings on Blender/Unity.
