going to turn back the hands of time and travel to ancient rome if you ever wanted to walk through three errors of the city's history well then the place to go is the german city of dimes stot that's where studio courtyard has created a three d. reconstruction a rome through the ages. rome wasn't built in a day and neither were these cinematic reconstructions that document the attorney city's development over the millennia. before the steeple pie think rome offers us the blueprint for our life our way of life civilisation legislation politics everything that surrounds us architecture our understanding of the art of aesthetics it can all be traced back to this culture. and this is where rome was built at least the digital version that's been developed here at the fabric o.t.l.
