LATEST (8) PANORAMAS

Salon Denon

The vestibule of Room Denon, the Salon Denon (named after the first director of the Louvre Museum under Napoleon I), located at the other end of the room, whose extraordinary ceiling painted by Charles-Louis Müller glorifies state patronage in France. This vestibule associated the dual function of the Palais du Louvre, monarchic and artistic, for it also led to two galleries of paintings (now the Salle Daru and the Salle Mollien).

Aksla - Alesund

Alesund's viewpoint, Norway. Ålesund, a sea port on the west coast of Norway, is noted for its unique concentration of Art Nouveau architecture.
In January 1904, the town once built largely of wood, was the scene of a terrible fire. Practically the entire town was destroyed during the night and the population had to leave the town in the middle of the night. Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany had often gone on vacation to Sunnmøre. After the fire, he sent four warships with materials to build temporary shelters and barracks. After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt in stone, brick, and mortar in Jugendstil (Art Nouveau), the architectural style of the time.

Colosseum's Usage

The Colosseum was used to host gladiatorial shows as well as a variety of other events. The shows, called munera, were always given by private individuals rather than the state. They had a strong religious element but were also demonstrations of power and family prestige, and were immensely popular with the population. Another popular type of show was the animal hunt, or venatio. This utilized a great variety of wild beasts, mainly imported from Africa and the Middle East, and included creatures such as rhinoceros, hippopotamuses, elephants, giraffes, aurochs, wisents, Barbary lions, panthers, leopards, bears, Caspian tigers, crocodiles and ostriches.
