Hollywood Takes a Roman Holiday … Again

ROME — Inside the Cinecittà film studios, originally built by Mussolini in part to produce fascist propaganda, a catapult is parked beside Soundstage 13. Not far away, craftsmen touch up chariots. The props are for the remake of the 1959 swords-and-sandals epic, “Ben-Hur,” which is consuming much of the vast studio lot, if not all of it.
