Volterra Wall “Possibly from Roman Amphitheater”

An 80-meter-long elliptical-shaped wall discovered in the Tuscan city of Volterra could have originally been part of a Roman amphitheater, Tuscany Governor Enrico Rossi said last month together with Volterra Mayor Marco Buselli and Tuscany’s Archaeological Heritage Superintendent Andrea Pessina. They also said that the discovery, which occurred during the excavations near the city’s Diana’s Door, could change local archaeological history and become the most important finding of a Roman amphitheater over the last century. The Etruscan city of Volterra was one of the most prosperous before the birth of Christ and before the supremacy of Rome in the third century B.C.
