Colosseum – Great Amphitheater


Nearly 2,000 years after its construction, the Colosseum was elected as modern wonder of the world, with Machu Picchu, Taj Mahal, Petra, the Great Wall, Chichen Itza and Jesus Statue in Rio de Janeiro. The greatest amphitheater of antiquity and ruin times stood in the crowded center of Rome, the hills shelter Esquilin, Palatine and Caelian. Without it, the once mighty imperial city would be hard to imagine: the architectural splendor of the Colosseum testified to Roman builders and sophisticated genius of a people cruel conqueror.

Colosseum story can be heard in numerous documentaries, read history books, encyclopedias viewed, sites and collections or exhibitions of pictures. Even when you enter its arched corridors, hit by wind and sun, and listen to explanations of the guide, you seem to know better arena and fights between gladiators. Listen – to how much time? – That none of the modern stadiums failed to emulate the engineering model of the Colosseum arena. That for many shows organized by the Roman ruling class, are similar in magnitude and importance with the great game of football (and beyond …) today, although with different purposes. Imagining and over 55,000 people filling the ranks of the huge amphitheater and frantically aclamând favorite Gladiator victory, while politicians and nobles welcomes together for profitable investment, and members of the gladiator schools are up to November shows attractive, you can think that in 2000 years, some things remain unchanged.

construction of the Colosseum was started by Emperor Vespasian in 72 to 73 years (after the victory of the Jews, the riots of 70) and completed by his son Titus in 80. His brother, Domitian, completed arena in 81-83, with other walls underground tunnels used by the slaves and animals. It is said that in five years of uninterrupted, Hebrew prisoners raised amphitheater called “Flavian”, after the ruling family whose plans have been carried out successfully so. The name “Colosseum” has become popular for two reasons: arena was enormous, and its position close to the Colossus of Nero was an enormous statue of the former king, whose palace with ( Domus Aurea ) was destroyed by the successors to buildings make way for us.

elliptical, Colosseum measures 187 meters and 155 meters high focus on the small axis, while the arena itself is 76/44 m amphitheater facade rises to 49 meters and is formed of three floors traversing stone in combination with other materials (stone mortar and tied with iron clasps), each with one 80 spring floor, over which was added a fourth with windows.
