Italy, gorgeous Italy, seems to have more ancient amphitheatres than it can shake a stick at; but that doesn’t mean that seeing them lit up at night is any less breathtaking. The one at Taormina in Sicily is second only in size to that at Syracuse and was built in the third century BC. Italian lighting designer iGuzzini was commissioned recently to create non-invasive LED lighting so the theatre could be used for events at night as well as for visiting by day.
