Rome’s plaza is open to the opera


Rome – Once a theater of ancient chariot racing, here is the Maximus Square in Rome transformed into an opera house, with the organizers of Corona forced to search for huge sites that allow social spacing.

It took weeks to equip the 2,800-year-old square, one of the largest public entertainment venues in the world, and its vast dimensions and natural structure that resemble ancient Greek theaters make it an ideal location.

“Maximus Square has been transformed from a square to a theater … in this case,” said Francesco Arena, technical director of the Rome Opera House.

“It is due in one way or another to its origin, roots and function as a showroom,” he added.
