Roman Colosseum: Rome, Italy

  • This great amphitheater in the centre of Rome was built to give favours to successful legionnaires and to celebrate the glory of the Roman Empire.
  • Its design concept still stands to this very day, and virtually every modern sports stadium some 2,000 years later still bears the irresistible imprint of the Colosseum’s original design.
  • Today, through films and history books, we are even more aware of the cruel fights and games that took place in this arena, all for the joy of the spectators.
