That is yet one more map I found by way of the ever fascinating Net Curios, which is a weekly roundup of attention-grabbing issues discovered on-line (fairly often with an AI bent). This week Net Curios reviewed Dolce Activation, ‘a really content-lite web site’ however one wherein you get to drive ‘A TINY VESPA AROUND ROME!!!’

In reality Dolce Activation is little greater than a advertising and marketing marketing campaign for Dolce and Gabbana perfumes. Nonetheless the marketing campaign does characteristic this superbly rendered post-medieval map of Rome, full with 3D buildings. With a view to uncover a few of Dolce and Gabbana’s hidden perfumes your goal is to drive across the map on a moped and discover 4 of Rome’s most well-known landmarks.   

BTW, you do not have to drive the moped round. It’s also possible to use your mouse to discover Rome by dragging the map round.

I do not know Rome nicely sufficient to make sure however I feel Dolce Activation just isn’t an actual map of Rome. It seems to be like Dolce and Gabbana might have simply taken 4 well-known Roman landmarks and positioned them on an imaginary map of the town (though I could possibly be mistaken). For those who do need to discover an actual post-medieval map of Rome then you’ll be able to go to the Interactive Nolli Map Web site.
