Antichita Romanae[1] (1748) is a series of prints by Italian artist Piranesi of real and fictitious Roman ruins, inspired by the late Baroque works of Claude Lorrain and Salvatore Rosa who had featured romantic and fantastic depictions of ruins; in part as a memento mori or as a reminiscence of a golden age of architecture. Piranesi's reproductions (see right) were a strong influence on Neoclassicism.
