The Roman Colosseum (70 - 82 A.D.) Rome, Italy
This great amphitheater in the centre of Rome was built to give favors 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.
