PEPLUM Location: Laghetto dell'EUR

A dried-up artificial lake was used as location for several PEPLUM films. I couldn't find a photo of the lake sans water but the image above and the last one below sorta give a good idea of what it could have looked like.

The location was used in THE QUEEN OF SHEBA

Mimmo Palmara and Steve Reeves in the location that might be the Laghetto dell'E.U.R., a dried up lake bed.

The wrestling scene from HANNIBAL (1959)
