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: From the ancient theatre of Baia to the ancient odeon remains of Bacoli are 3 klm. away, an a long eternity if you are driving a July Sunday morning, full of Naples young people in search of sun, sea and sand, a very long eternity that can take you more that one and a half hour.
