Panem et circenses

Quasi literalment. Perque els circenses estaven allí (sense morts), però el panem... ja m'explicaràs. Conyes apart, qui els hi havia de dir als constructors del amfiteatre romà de Tarragona que quasi 2000 anys despres es tornaria a fer servir per a ludi gladiatores.

 

Per cert, els gladiadors son els italians del Instituto Ars Dimicandi. Foto presa a la Tarraco Viva del 2009.

The circenses, in the form of gladiators, were there, but not the panem!

 

Only joking. It's wonderful to see a 1700 years old amphiteather being used again for it's designed use: games, gladiator games.

 

The gladiators are the italians from the Instituto Ars Dimicandi, and the event, the Tarraco Viva reenactment festival in Tarragona, Catalonia.
