The subject of this Drone Video Award winning video by top contributor and pilot BeemFlights is the great Colosseum of Rome.  It was completed in 80 AD, having been largely financed with Roman plunder from the capture of the Second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.  The Colosseum seated up to 50k spectactors and was the largest of its kind in the world.  Situated adjacent to the Roman Forum on land that had been burned in the Great Rome Fire of 64 AD, it's one of the most-visited sites in the Eternal City.

As the Covid-19 coronavirus unleashed its full fury on Italy beginning in March, 2020, the country began a roughly two week process of adopting successively more stringent social distancing rules.  While Rome was not as hard-hit as some of the country's northern regions, outdoor life in the national capital essentially ground to a halt by the end of the month.   Contributor Luigi@Flyage, working with various news sources, managed to capture these eerie scenes from the Eternal City under lockdown.

Contributor Volovisione, one of the top drone piloting companies in Italy, treats us to a highly stylized aerial view of the great ruins of Rome's Colosseum.  It is the largest amphitheater which was ever constructed, and it's estimated it could hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectactors.  The Colosseum was tied directly to the Seige of Jerusalem in 70 AD; the building was adorned with booty captured from the Temple of Jerusalem and built largely with captured slaves from that bloody campaign.

Ancient Monterano

Contributor Zippomaker created this beautiful drone video of Monterano, an ancient village just outside of Rome, Italy.  Monterano was an Etruscan village, part of the Etruscan Empire which corresponded roughly to modern day Tuscany but extended further south into what is now Lazio (the region which surrounds Rome in the west-central part of the country).  The once-mighty Etruscan civilization eventually came under the domination of Rome by about the 4th century BC when the city on the Tiber River was still a republic.
