Teatro romano (Spoleto)
Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera.
Il Teatro romano è un edificio teatrale di Spoleto (Spoletium), in provincia di Perugia risalente al I secolo a.C.
Subì danni per una frana, forse a seguito di un terremoto, e fu restaurato già in antico. In seguito fu riutilizzato come cava di pietra e nel XII secolo venne costruita su parte della scena la chiesa di Sant'Agata, affiancata nel XIII e XIV secolo dalle case della famiglia Corvi.
Nel complesso si insediò alla fine del XIV secolo il monastero di suore benedettine di Sant'Agata e nel XVI secolo vi venne realizzato un chiostro su pilastri ottagonali. Nel 1870 il monastero venne adibito a carcere.
Le rovine del teatro, ancora visibili nel Cinquecento, erano state disegnate da Baldassarre Peruzzi, ma il sito del teatro venne identificato solo nel 1891 e gli scavi sistematici furono condotti a partire dal 1938.
Il monastero di Sant'Agata ospita oggi il Museo nazionale archeologico di Spoleto e il teatro viene utilizzato per concerti e spettacoli, in particolare nell'ambito del Festival dei Due Mondi.
Il teatro romano si trova all'interno delle mura cittadine e conserva una cavea di 70 m di diametro, in parte poggiata su un ambulacro a pianta semicircolare, coperto da volta a botte, dal quale si poteva accedere tramite tre accessi (vomitoria) ai posti a sedere. Dalle estremità della cavea si accedeva invece ai posti riservati ai magistrati e ai cittadini eminenti.
L'orchestra conserva la pavimentazione in lastre di marmo colorato e sul proscenio sono visibili i fori per i pali del sipario.
La facciata esterna era costituita da arcate inquadrate da semicolonne di ordine tuscanico.
Roman Theatre (Spoleto)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The Roman Theatre is a theater building in Spoleto (Spoletium), in the province of Perugia dates back to the first century BC
Damage suffered by a landslide, perhaps following an earthquake, and was restored in ancient times. It was later reused as a stone quarry and in the twelfth century was built on part of the scene, the church of St. Agatha, in the thirteenth and fourteenth century, flanked by the houses of the Ravens family.
Overall, settled in the late fourteenth century, the monastery of Benedictine nuns of St. Agatha and in the sixteenth century there was built a monastery on octagonal pillars. In 1870 the monastery was used as a prison.
The ruins of the theater, still visible in the sixteenth century, were designed by Baldassare Peruzzi, but the site of the theater was only identified in 1891 and systematic excavations were conducted since 1938.
The monastery of St. Agatha is now home to the National Archaeological Museum of Spoleto and the theater is used for concerts and shows, especially during the Festival of Two Worlds.
The Roman theater is located within the city walls and keep a cavea of 70 m in diameter, partly resting on a semi-circular walkway, covered by a barrel vault, from which you could access via three entrances (vomitoria) to places to sit. From the ends of the auditorium was entered instead of the seats reserved for judges and eminent citizens.
The orchestra keeps the paving slabs of colored marble, and the holes are visible on the stage for the curtain poles.
The facade was made of semi-arches framed by Tuscan order.

Joyeux Noel to you too Sylvio,

Beautiful nightscape with perfect balance between "blue light" and tungsten light. The composition is well balanced, we enter down the image and walk down the stairs in direction of the warmth of the building. Vevy nice work. TFS.

Merry Christmas Silvio,

Fabulous, historical composition of this amphitheatre taken within that magical twilight hour. A choice angle/pov and crisp sharpness completes this fine image.
