  cannon on castle ramparts, Castel Sant'Angelo
by mrclay2000

Some of the metal from Rome's most famous buildings (the Pantheon and the Coliseum and others) was stripped away from their original locations and melted down to make armaments for immediate installation in the Castel Sant'Angelo. Some of the cannon you see here may be made from centuries-old furnishings.
