In the course of his work during this time, Piranesi developed his etching technique which was highly original. Using this technique, he produced bold contrasts and rich textures of shadow and light by means of repeated, intricate of the copperplate bitings.

The artist managed to create more than two thousand plates in his lifetime He inspired all architects and artists. Yet, architects in Italy were not the initiators of international Neoclassicism but were its followers. Piranesi was one of the most important determining influences on the movement. His etchings of the ruins of Rome transformed those historic fragments into inspiring idealistic compositions. The artist was in the front position of Roman activity.
