Rome to 'paint' Trajan's Column with light

Interesting. I'm not sure how they're going to do this, seeing as they don't explain it in the article. They do have a good point though. Most people associate ancient Greece and Rome with stark white marble. Not so! Those lovely statues that grace todays museums where once polychrome and probably quite stunning.
