Roman theatre found in Florence

Archeologia: a Palazzo Vecchio spunta corridoio Teatro romano

Archaeologists working in Florence, Italy, have discovered the remains of a Roman theatre under the Palazza Vecchio.

The latest find at the site in the centre of the Tuscan capital includes the original painted stone pavements along which spectators used to walk from the outer circle of the theatre to the orchestra pit, which already had been excavated during previous digs. Also discovered were well shafts going as deep as more than 10 metres below the current surface of Florence, providing water and waste disposal for the theatre, as well as remains of the foundations of the walls used to build the Salone dei Cinquecento.
