Photographer's Note

Like many ancient arenas, this one in Lecce is still used for public performances. In the bg is the Venetian bronze statue of Saint Oronzo atop an Obelisk. It was donated to Lecce by the city of Brindisi. Originally it was part of a set of two pillars marking the end of the Appian Way in Brindisi.

Emperor Hadrian had the amphitheatre and the theatre built. I might load a shot of the amphitheatre later as a workshop.
