The Roman Coliseum went dark for 30 minutes on Friday night in honor of the victims of Thursday’s terrorist attacks in Spain, where at least 14 people died and 100 were injured.

The Iconic Flavian amphitheater, a symbol of the eternal city, turned off its lights for half an hour.

The gesture was proposed by the ministry of culture of Italy and the city of Rome as a symbol of closeness and solidarity from the Italian people with the deceased and those injured in the attacks both in Barcelona and in the town of Cambrils.
