    Concerning the land on which Nero had his palace after burning Rome.

    Mentre noi possiamo avere 20 anfiteatri in tutto il mondo romano, 100, quanti ne vogliamo, di Domus Aurea ce n'è una sola, speriamo di poterlo almeno in parte progressivamente riaprire al pubblico.

    While we may have 20 amphitheatres in the whole Roman world, a hundred, so many as we want, there is but one of Domus Aurea....we hope..

    This is spoken speech..it isn't clear to me at least what she isc saying precisely...can anyone clarify please? Grazie.

    While we may have as many as 20, 100, you say it amphitheaters in the whole Roman world, there is but one Domus Aurea...

    While there may be 20, 100, umpteen amphitheaters scattered throughout the Roman world, there is only one Domus Aurea. We hope we may be able to re-open it to the public, if only one part after another.

    No, it means as many as you like, an indefinite, countless number. Near enough. :D
