COLOSSEUM SHADOWS TM
Cane Corso

Purebred, Proven, Superior Italian Working Lines

by Randall C. Todd





Balance, symmetry, aesthetics are important elements to any well-made presentation. When it comes to website creation, the fact that some computers are set to view the internet at one resolution while others at another creates a problem. The structure/appearance of a webpage is seriously impacted when viewed by a computer set to a resolution other than the one the webpage was created to accomodate. Headings and lines can be fragmented and broken up, and some pictures can be greatly reduced in size if forced between other elements of the page. I don't know enough about website design and coding to know how, or even if, a particular webpage can be coded so that it is automatically converted/fitted by each individual browser that "sees" it into the specific resolution which that particular computer is set to. So I've used another method and done some extra work so that this website retains its aesthetic integrity for most everyone who views it. As the author & creator of this website it's important to me that balance and symmetry be preserved for each viewer -and even more important, so that titles, headings, captions, and other important items on the webpage don't appear fragmented/broken up, too large or too small. To avoid that problem you need to know what screen resolution your computer is set to. For your convenience I've added the instant check tool. For your information 1024 x 768 is a popular resolution and is what many computer users set their computers to.

To the left is the "screen res instant check" tool (it never lies). Click it to be certain of your current screen resolution. To the right is the "screen res reset" button (actually a simple 4-step tutorial for Microsoft Windows users). Use that one to set the appropriate screen resolution (this website, like many others, has been constructed to accommodate a resolution of 1024x768).





Welcome to the great COLOSSEUM at Rome. Unless you just arrived at this page from a search engine or a webpage outside the COLOSSEUM SHADOWS website, you have already passed through the grand arch of the "ENTRY PORTAL" (webaddress: ItalianCaneCorso.com). Having left the bright sunlight behind as you stepped into the cool shade of a short hall, in a few strides you have found yourself here in a tall foyer with curving shadowy halls leading to either side and another leading forward toward the center of the building where it is obvious by the diffused daylight filtering in from that direction that the heart of the building is open to the sky. Today, compared to centuries past, there are only a few visitors here at a time and it is eerily quiet. But you'd almost swear that if you listen hard enough one could hear faint echos from the past ...the shuffling sound of many feet upon the stone floors of the dark halls...And was that a great cheer of a crowd outside? A clanging of armor? Can you hear the roaring of angry and terrified beasts -bulls, bears, lions, tigers, elephants, etc- echoing through the dark ancient halls -bellows of captured beasts long-dead which had once been forced to fight for their lives in the arena to give twisted pleasure to their bloodthirsty spectators? Can you hear the desperate cries of the beasts confined and waiting their turn in the dark basement? And can you hear the frenzied barking of large canines -Molossers- ancestors of today's various Mastiff breeds, born to be an intelligent noble companion to man, but these having been trained and taunted to bloodlust by cruel heartless keepers about to release them from their cages and tethers onto the hot dusty floor of the sundrenched arena -setting them upon both men and beast to either kill or be killed...
The shadows of the Colosseum seem to have retained some of what this place has seen and heard. At times some of them even seem to shift and move. This is a haunted place. An old place of ghosts, shade and shadows....

Before proceeding further, as you cast your eyes around this ancient shadowy foyer once filled with life -and death, you find that you are standing before a finely polished marble wall with directions to the various parts of this great ancient ediface chiseled into its face. This is "THE COLOSSEUM DIRECTORY" (webaddress: ItalianCaneCorso.com/directory). This Directory is the mainpage or heart of the COLOSSEUM SHADOWS Cane Corso website. Using the table of descriptive hyperlinks found just below, this page will guide you through the Colosseum's labyrinthine corridors and into the many informative halls and rooms here as you enter the world of a rare and rustic ancient canine -one which sprang directly from the great fabled Molossus of old which watched over an empire in days when ancient evenings settled over a world that was ruled by the iron of a city called Rome...
