Production of a comprehensive, searchable, and open-access version online of the works of Piranesi. Work would include preservation, scanning, custom page-level metadata creation, translation, digital collections management, web design, exhibit curation, and public events planning.

Giovanni Battista Piranesi was an innovative graphic artist most known for his architectural studies of Rome and imaginary prisons. “The Digital Piranesi” aims to make this rare material accessible in a complete digital collection and, in an interactive digital edition, to make it visible, legible, and searchable in ways that the original works are not. The scale and breadth of Piranesi’s works require innovative methods of presentation, discovery, and analysis. By digitally illuminating and enacting many of the graphic features of his designs, this project will provide new ways of seeing this unique historical material.
