Photographer's Note

The Roman theater, largely rebuilt. The scene is occupied by the former church of St. Agatha, currently housing the National Archaeological Museum.
Builded in late imperial era and ruined perhaps because of an earthquake shortly after construction.
In medieval times it was used as a stone quarry and many of them were building design in the Rock, the nearby Palazzo Ancaiani and the bell tower of the Duomo, on the Roman origin of the material recovery, many pagan symbols, such as fouls winged luck, are still visible on the bell tower of the Cathedral.
