Ahhhhh Lucca

From a trip several years ago, the Piazza dell"Anfitheatro is the echo of the original Roman amphitheater, which could hold 10,000 people and a few lions. Over time the inside was filled in and then cleared and the walls built upon and then removed and rebuilt into its present form. Rather like replacing the handle of a hammer, and then the head, but calling it the same hammer.
