Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Arena Di Verona (Roman Ampthitheatre in Verona)

Address: Piazza Bra, 1, 37121 Verona VR, Italy

 

Apart from doing a Romeo and Juliet tour while in Verona, this was one of our first stops: the Arena Di Verona or the Roman Amphitheatre.

According to Wikipedia:

The Verona Arena is a Romanamphitheatre in Piazza Bra in Verona, Italy built in the first century. It is still in use today and is internationally famous for the large-scale opera performances given there.

Still from the same Wikipedia source:

It is one of the best preserved ancient structures of its kind. In ancient times, nearly 30,000 people was the housing capacity of the Arena. Nowadays, for security reasons, the maximum attendance is 15,000 people.

“You never know. Say the arena’s actually a giant cake-“
“Say we move on,” I broke in.” 
― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

“The various modes of worship which prevailed in the Roman world were all considered by the people as equally true; by the philosopher as equally false; and by the magistrate as equally useful.” 
― Edward Gibbon, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

“Love art in yourself, and not yourself in art.” 
― Konstantin Stanislavski, My Life In Art

“All the world’s a stage.” 
― William Shakespeare, As You Like It

“Act well your part; there all the honour lies.” 
― Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man

“Life is a theatre set in which there are but few practicable entrances.” 
― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
