“I am a professor of Archaeology at the University of Florence specialised in Topography of Ancient Rome. I have followed the development of Rome Reborn VR since its inception in the 1990s. Now that the first VR applications of the project are starting to appear in online stores, I am delighted to express my strong support for this unique initiative which combines archaeological accuracy with state-of-the-art technology. The goal is to make the core monuments of the Eternal City easily comprehensible even to non-experts, and to bring ancient Rome into the homes and schools of people wherever they may be. In my opinion, the Rome Reborn VR team has brilliantly achieved this goal. --Prof. Paolo Liverani”

“As Director of the Civic Museum of Rieti, about 80 km north of Rome, on Saturday, May 26, 2018 I organized, at the museum, two public demonstrations of the Rome Reborn VR application presenting the Roman Forum. Over 100 people of all ages attended both demonstrations. I can report that the response was enthusiastically positive. The event showed that Rome Reborn VR has the potential to make the study of history come alive for students and the general public. Rome Reborn VR is a great tool for the museum world and for anyone around the world who wants to learn more about ancient Rome by going back in time to visit the city as it appeared at the peak of its development in AD 320. --Dr. Monica De Simone”

“This is an *amazing* pedagogical tool with lots of applications in secondary and higher education. As a professor of Classics, I consider Roman Reborn VR an indispensable tool for courses on Roman civilization, Roman history, Roman archaeology, even Latin literature. While this app has a lot to offer to faculty and students, it will also appeal to non-academics who are interested in ancient Rome. --Prof. Zoe Stamatopoulou”

About This Software

Rome Reborn® The Colosseum District combines virtual tourism with virtual time travel.

In this application, the Rome Reborn® team takes you back in time to the Flavian Amphitheater (“Colosseum”) and nearby monuments. Teleport from site to site to visit the arches of Constantine and Titus, the Colosseum, the Meta Sudans, the Temple of Venus and Rome, the Ludus Magnus, and the iconic Colossus of the Sun. Like all of Rome Reborn’s apps, this one offers expert commentary as well as reconstructions of the structures as they looked in antiquity. Time Warps allow you to toggle between the ancient and modern views of the monuments.

Along the way, you will learn about the leaders responsible for commissioning the monuments. You can go inside the Temple of Venus and Rome (Rome’s largest religious sanctuary) to see the stunning cult statues, and you can get up close to the individual reliefs on the arches of Constantine and Titus, whose colors have been lovingly restored. The content of each relief is briefly explained on the virtual tablet that serves as the navigational aid on the tour. You can also visit areas of the ruins not readily accessible to visitors to Rome, including inside the Venus cella of the Temple of Venus and Rome and down to the underground chambers of the Colosseum.

Rome Reborn® The Colosseum District is suitable both for students at all levels studying ancient history and the general public interested in learning more about The Eternal City.
