Imagen captada a pulso, en una de las galerías del Anfiteatro Romano de Itálica. Espero poder expresar la sensación que pudieron sentir los gladiadores en su momento.
El Anfiteatro de Itálica, fue construido en el Norte de la que fue la primera ciudad romana en Hispania, Itálica, situada en el actual término municipal de Santiponce (provincia de Sevilla), en Andalucía (España), que fue fundada en el año 206 A.D..
Se construyo en la época del emperador Adriano, aproximadamente entre los años 117-138 y fue uno de los mas grandes de todo el imperio romano.
Con una capacidad de 25.000 espectadores y unas medidas totales de 156 x 134 m., disponia de tres niveles de graderío. Bajo el nivel del antiguo suelo de madera del anfiteatro había un foso de servicio para los diferentes espectáculos de gladiadores, denominados munus gladiatorum y luchas contra fieras, llamadas venationes.
El graderío, cavea estaba dividido en tres secciones, la ima, media y summa cavea, separadas por unos pasillos anulares denominados praecinctiones. La primera, la ima cavea, disponía de 6 gradas, con 8 puertas de acceso, y estaba reservada a una clase dirigente. La segunda, la media cavea, estaba destinada a la población más humilde, tenía 12 gradas y 14 puertas de acceso. La summa cavea, cubierta por un toldo, estaba reservada solamente para albergar a niños y mujeres.
El anfiteatro contaba además con varias salas dedicadas al culto de Némesis y de Dea Caelestis.

English:
Photo taken without tripod, in galleries of the Roman Amphitheatre of Italic. I expect to be able to express the sensation that the gladiators could feel in his moment.
Italica was the birthplace of Roman emperor Trajan. Hadrian was generous to his settled town, which he made a colonia; he added temples, including a Trajaneum venerating Trajan, and rebuilt public buildings. Italica’s amphitheater seated 25,000 spectators—half as many as the Flavian Amphitheatre in Rome— and was the third largest in the Roman Empire. The city's Roman population at the time is estimated to have been only 8000. The games and theatrical performances funded by the local aristocracy, who filled the positions of magistrate, were a means of establishing status: the size of the amphitheater shows that the local elite was maintaining status that extended far beyond Italica itself.
