Ancient Rome

In Rome, masses were used to create reality. Things such as hundreds of people, plates, animals, etc.
Ampitheatre, such as Colosseum, has machine to lift animals from sub-levels to the arena level. The Colosseum basement was used to store props and scenic elements. This basment went some 21 ft below the Colosseum.
