MY BEDSIDE TABLE: Tosi, Giovana; “Gli edificio per spettacoli nell’Italia romana”. Roma, Quasar, 2003 // Sear, Frank; “Roman theatres: an architectural study”. Oxford University Press, 2006.// Ciancio Rossetto, Paola; Giuseppina Pisani Sartorio (eds); “Teatri Greci e Romani: alle origini del linguaggio rappresentato”. Rome: SEAT, 1995.

OUT OF PRINT: Sometimes there are places in which there is not too much remains, but they have a great charm. it´s truth, one have to imagine Mevaniola´s ancient theatre, and it´s also truth that one can imagine a spectacular barbecue here, or drinking lemonade enjoying a book seating in the rows of these lost garden. A charming place, anyway... that we do not have to imagine it.
