The Marcello Theatre, known as the second largest theatre in Rome, was damaged by fire and war in the middle of the 1st century. It began to collapse in the 4th century. It was rebuilt as a fortress in the Middle Ages. The top seats and pillars were removed during the reconstruction in the Middle Ages. It became a noble residence in the 16th century. So far, apart from the archways on the 1st and 2nd floors, there are still some traces of the unusual theatre. Today, the 2,000-year-old monument is an apartment.
Few people mention Rome as a scenic spot. I also passed by accidentally, walking from the mouth of truth to the Pantheon. I found this place on the map called Teatro di Marcello. Looking a little like the Colosseum, it was also this kind of arc-shaped building. At that time, I really did not know what was here. I just thought it was good to shuttle freely between the ruins. Rome is a monument everywhere! Now I understand that Teatro is theatre. It used to be a theatre!
