I'd like to know about the hinges.

Seems like their goddess Cardea is still protecting those hinges.  :D

"Cardea was the ancient Roman goddess of health, thresholds, door handles, and hinges. Her name comes from cardo, meaning door-pivot. She protected children against vampires and witches, and was also the benefactress of craftsmen."

An old friend of mine built some huge steel doors (not as big as OP’s pic, obviously) for a stone supplier to display large pieces of marble/granite on both sides. They were so big and heavy, and swung so easily that they had to add some dampers to keep them from crushing someone on the other side.
