Marinelli is designed for user that want a ready-to-use theme. It's not a starter theme like Zen, but can easily be customized by users. It has a built-in rotating banner feature. You can upload banners from the theme settings, and decide where to show them. Each banner can point to a link to highlight content with an image. A banner can also have a title and a description and the theme will automatically put them over the image. It has 8 collapsible regions plus one drop-down region at the top of the page.
