Engravings by Piranesi
“But the monarch of all European ruins, the Colosseum, main- tains that reserve and that royal seclusion which is proper to majesty. Weeds and flowers spring from its massy arches and its circling seats, and vines hang their fringes from its lofty walls. An impressive silence broods over the monstrous structure where such multitudes of men and women were wont to assemble in other days…” (Mark Twain)
