When I hear the word resilient I often think about great architecture, structures that have endured centuries of natural and human destruction. The Colosseum, in Rome, is one of these fabulous structures. It was built between 71-72 and 80 AD as a gift to the Roman citizens. Over the centuries it suffered great damages due to natural phenomena such as lightning and earthquakes. By the 20th century, a combination of weather, natural disasters, neglect and vandalism had destroyed nearly two-thirds of the original Colosseum, including all of the arena’s marble seats and its decorative elements. And yet, following restoration efforts, it still stands majestic and continues to be a leading attraction for tourists from all over the world. I call it resilience!
They really look amazing…And yes! Resilience is the word! Great shots!
