Rome Reborn is an international initiative launched in the mid-1990s by the UCLA Cultural Virtual Reality Laboratory. The goal was the creation of 3D digital models illustrating the urban development of ancient Rome from the first settlement in the Bronze Age (ca. 1500 B.C.) to the depopulation of the city in the early Middle Ages (ca. A.D. 550). With the advice of an international scientific advisory committee, the leaders of the project decided that A.D. 320 was the best moment in time to begin the work of modeling. At that time, Rome had reached the peak of its population, and major Christian churches were just beginning to be built. After this date, the capital of the empire left Rome for Constantinople and so few new civic buildings were built. Much of what survives of the ancient city dates to the period around A.D. 320, making reconstruction less speculative than it must unavoidably be for earlier phases.
