Colonised by Corinthians around 734 B.C., Syracuse embodies the glories and triumphs of antiquity and the ancient past in a way rivaled only by Athens Carthage and Rome. It is a feast of ancient history in architecture, monuments, geography and geology. Fo n dat ă de colonizatori greci din Corint în jurul anului 734 î.Hr Siracuza întruchipează gloria antichităţii , iar istoria trecutului ei antic rivaliz ează doar cu Atena , Cartagina şi Roma.

Slide 7:

The Greek theatre, whose cavea is one of the largest ever built by the ancient Greeks: it has 67 rows, divided into nine sections with eight aisles. Only traces of the scene and the orchestra remain. The edifice (still used today) was modified by the Romans, who adapted it to their different style of spectacles, including also circus games. Din teatrul Grec a c ărui cavea a fost cea mai mare construită vreodată ( 67 de rânduri împărţite în nouă sectoare, prin opt culoare între bănci ) a u rămas doar urme din scenă şi orchestră. Edificiul (care se foloseşte şi astăzi) a fost transformat de romani, care l-au adaptat la tipul lor de spectacole (inclusiv spectacole de circ)

Slide 12:

Cut directly into the rock, it was enlarged and modified several times over the centuries, and is still in use today - Greek plays are performed here in May and June each year (note that if you visit around this time you will find the theatre disfigured with wooden seating and stage sets). Tăiat direct în stâncă a fost mărit şi modificat de mai multe ori de-a lungul secolelor şi este în folosinţă şi în zilele noastre – aici se joacă tragedii greceşti în fiecare an în lunile mai şi iunie.

Slide 15:

The Greek theatre, one of Sicily's and Europe's greatest classical sites surviving from antiquity.

Slide 19:

Near the theatre are the latomìe, stone quarries, also used as prisons in ancient times. The most famous sight here is the huge cave called the Ear of Dionysius (Orecchio di Dionisio). Apparently it was Caravaggio who coined the name; the connection with Dionysius is the story that this ruler of ancient Syracuse used to eavesdrop on his prisoners incarcerated here, thanks to the cave's acoustics. Lângă teatru sunt carierele de piatră, odinioară folosite şi ca închisori. Cea mai faimoasă este Urechea lui Dionisos. Se pare că cel care i-a dat acest nume a fost Caravaggio. Legendele spun că tiranul Dionisos o folosea datorită acusticii sale perfecte pentru a-i spiona pe prizonierii închişi aici.

Entrance to Dionisus' Ear, the cave is approximately 23m high and 5 to 11m large, with an unusual S running developing in deepness for 65m, with wiggly walls converging in high, a sort of very pointed vault.
