Itinerary B
Piazza Armerina

[3] A cold marble for a warm welcome

The long colonnade of this large quadrangular space has mostly grey granite shafts with attic-type white marble bases. The corner columns, on the other hand, are made of breccia di Settebassi. The white marble capitals of Corinthian order, with the lightness and elegance of their acanthus leaves, were designed to support a marble lintel, itself used to support for the pitched roofs.
