A Japanese TV shoots in Italica for a documentary on Rome’s legacy
The Archaeological Complex of Italica, which keeps the ruins of the ancient Roman city settled in Santiponce (Seville) and was declared Spanish National Monument over a hundred years ago, has recently been the scene of a shooting by a professional team in the audiovisual sector from Japan.
These films will be used for a documentary on the ancient Roman roads that includes images of the cultural and tourist Silver Route, inspired by the old Roman road from Merida to Astorga. The documentary will be issued by the Japanese television ‘BS Fuji ‘.
On 23rd October, the production crew from the Japanese company KMA Interface visited the Archaeological Complex of Italica, in order to record images of the impressive amphitheater and other enclaves of the legendary ruins. The work of these professionals is part of the development of a documentary entitled ‘History of the Roman Walkways’, whose broadcast is being prepared by the TV channel BS Fuji.
On December 13, 2012, the Archaeological Complex of Italica turned one hundred years as a national monument. It was December 13, 1912, when proposed by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, a royal order declared these emblematic Roman ruins as “National Monument”. The ancient Roman city of Italica was founded by Scipio the African and was the birthplace of the famous emperor Trajan.
A MONUMENT TO DISCOVER
The recent refurbishment of the old theater, built between the years 30 and 37 AD, has been a catalyst for the archaeological site, which in its renovated stage area hosts shows at the International Dance Festival from Italica and functions of the cycle Roman Theaters in Andalusia.
