No doubt: this is one of the best sunset that I've ever seen!
The Colosseum is one of the most important and known monuments in the world: Colosseum is Rome, and Rome is Colosseum.
Also known as the The "Flavian Amphitheater", it is the largest amphitheater ever built and is considered one of the greatest works of architecture and engineering.
On the other hand, this place is, practically, a huge graveyard, because it was the theater of tons of clash in which thousands and thousands of men lost their life.
Regarding this, I want to realize something different from the images circulating in the web; the majority of them are totally concerned about the external view - wonderful no doubt- but for this capture my idea is recreating the impressive impact and feeling that Colosseum had 2000 years ago .
I wanted a shoot from the inside, at golden hour, when tourists leave the structure and there is a perfect light for an evocative shot.

Tuscany - SR 68, location: La Mestola. Tondo [Full circle] 2009, concrete and iron, cm Ø600x60
An enormous circle, ring-shaped and open, appear along state SR 68, on the stretch that connects Volterra to the Saline hamlet.
This sign, typical of Staccioli, run along the road on the hill, underlining one of the most trodden streets outside Volterra.
In the underground at the foot of the town hill, the inhabitants used to extract, with a rather bizarre technique, the so-called "white gold" from the salt-mines. Today, despite its slow decline, this road which, ever since ancient times, has served as an enormous, resourceful mine, still marks the lot of these places.
