The Colosseum is also known as Flavio Amphitheatre, as its construction was ordered by the Flavian dynasty. The reason why the amphitheatre was called "Coliseum" is not certain.

The Coliseum has a long and compelling story, imprinted in every stone. The Colosseum is a monument that has had multiple functions over the centuries. Above all the Colosseum hosted gladiators' shows and 

naval battles! Even more in the arena there were also shows with wild beasts. Therefore the story of this extraordinary monumnet is absolutely worth listening to. Buy on-line Colosseum entrance! Reservation procedure can be completed in few steps!

The monument dimensions

The size of the Colosseum in its original plan boasted 52 meters high and 527 meters in perimeter. The amphitheater was well equipped with 76 entrances reserved for public access. On the arches to the right of the entrance you can still see the numbers above each entrance, in Roman numerals. In addition, there were for four entrances for logistics and services. This immense structure could accommodate a total of 50,000 spectators. 45,000 seated and 5,000 standing in the top area, which corresponds to the fifth level. In this section there were usually the slaves and the common people. 

To protect the public from the sun and the rain there was a complex removable protective structure called the “Velarium”. This was composed of triangles of transparent fabric and waterproof canvas. The triangles were connected by metal rings and the removable structure was controlled by pulleys, hoists and ropes which were operated by 300 sailors. Outside the Colosseum, 100 meters to the left of the entrance, you can still see the five cleats that secured the anchor ropes that held up the giant mobile structure.

The Shows in the Colosseum

The shows were organised during the summer for 18 hours a day. In contrast, during the winter only for 15 hours a day. Shows were planned two or three times a year in cycles of a week or more, but not every day. First of all beceuse the overall maintenance of the complex was very expensive.
In the mornings the fights took place with the wild beasts, lions, tigers, panthers, elephants, bulls, mastiffs dogs, bears, wild boars and gladiators. Weapons used included the trident, net, iron plated gloves and the Roman gladius sword which was about 70cm in length. 
In the afternoons the audience watched the gladiators fight. The battles did not always end in the death of one of them. Actually the gladiators were considered public figures very dear to the people. Therefore they did not welcome death.
