THE PAINTING OF JERUSALEM AT COLOSSEUM
A new video installation welcomes the visitors who cross the Colosseum’s Porta Triumphalis
A new video installation is dedicated to the story of the painting depicting Jerusalem, made in the 17th century on the Porta Triumphalis of the Flavian amphitheater: an extraordinary mural painting that represents an ideal view of the city of Jerusalem; an important testimony of a less known but more lasting phase of the Colosseum’s life.
The new visiting experience, born from the collaboration between the Archaeological Park of the Colosseum, Electa and Karmachina, includes two versions. During the day, the main scenes of the painting are illuminated by beams of light and told to the public through sounds and short descriptive captions; in the evening the experience is amplified by further video projections and by a soundtrack created by revisiting the sounds of the instruments of ancient Rome in a modern key.
