Broken as in 'ruin'.
The Greek amphitheater in Taormina, Sicily. Amid the Roman ruins of the island, this ruin certainly harks back to the Hellenistic period and demonstrates the Greek influence on this southern area of the Italian peninsula/island. In its day used as an amphitheater for oratory and by gladiators as a sport. Mount Etna can be viewed from here as much of Taormina is overshadowed by this active volcano.
