At a conference in Rome, Italy, in July, 1998, sponsored jointly by the
National Communication Association and the International Communication
Association, a small group of scholars will present a "walking panel" on
the rhetoric and technology of Roman tourist sites. One element of the tour
will be a talk by Professor Guido Michelone on representations of the
Colosseum in film.
I am setting up a modest supplementary web site for the walking panel, and
would like to add to it a suggested list of films about the Colosseum and
about Rome; suggestions for films to add to the list are welcome.
The web site (still a rough draft and very much under construction) is at
