Theater of Taormina. Sicily (Italy)
The ancient theater of Taormina, after that of Syracuse, is the largest classical theater in Sicily, capable of accommodating even today up to 10,000 spectators. The construction of this Hellenic theater was probably initiated in the third century BC. Already in Roman times, the theater undergoes important transformations and extensions, highlighting the rise of the perimeter walls and the widening of the cavea destined to welcome the public. The cavea has a maximum diameter of 109 meters and shows the most obvious sign of the Greek-Hellenistic origin of the theater, leaning on the natural slope and taking advantage of the points where the rocky spur rises to raise part of the structure. The spectacle offered by this theater to the visitor is truly indescribable, uniting the tradition of Hellenic architecture with the natural beauty of Mount Etna and Naxos Bay, next to the Ionian Sea.
