Amphitheater overlooking the water
The design of an open amphitheater, the sole one in the city, was dictated by the features of the site landscape. A natural altitude difference between a 13m elevation and the sea level was transformed by architects and designers into a peculiar “Colosseum” for water shows.
The amphitheater is oriented on the water, the stage can be both the water and the area along the coastline. The maximum capacity is 2,000 spectators.
