Lanciani was born in Rome, although some state he was born in Montecelio, now Guidonia Montecelio. He was professor of Roman topography at the Universita di Roma from 1878 until 1927. He is known today chiefly for his Forma Urbis Romae (1893-1901) and the Storia Degli Scavi, a regular summary of Roman excavations that started appearing in 1902. His students included Giulio Giglioli. Together with important British art historians such as Austen Henry Layard he re-edited the original 1843 guidebook to Rome for John Murray. He was a member of the Accademia dei Lincei and the Academia di S. Lucia. He received numerous honorary degrees, including those from Aberdeen, Wurzburg, Oxford, Harvard, and Glasgow. Lanciani's great work was the production of a map of the ancient city of Rome. Amongst his other works are: Ancient Rome in the Light of Recent Discoveries (1888) and Pagan and Christian Rome (1892).
