"Rome in a Nutshell is the name of the play,
As you know, Rome wasn't built in a day.
Three actors and a little rhyme,
Take you on a journey through time."
The play could also be known as "Rome by maps"
since they serve as a guideline to the sketches chosen to chart the
development of the expansion of the Roman Empire.
The Miracle Players were asked to perform in this
historic location as part of an experimental project initiated by the
current mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni. The project aims to make the
area surrounding the coliseum and the Roman Forum more enjoyable for
residents and tourists alike by reducing traffic and by providing
theatre, music and animation for children.
