This is one of the most important and majestic building made by the Romans, and definitely the most famous in the world. The Flavian Amphitheatre, this is its real name, was built by the emperor Vespasiano in 72 d.c. and completed by Tito in 80 d.c. With its capacity of 50.000 spectators, a real miracle of engineering at the time, it was used to host the biggest attraction of the city: the Games. Here slaves, animals and even ships were used to make real battles where nobody was blameless and where life or death was determined by the destiny or by the Emperor’s will, who with his thumb could have decided everybody’s fate. All this to ensure that the people of Rome could known how big and devastating was the Roman Empire. Today the Colosseo is the most visited tourist attraction in Rome, that with its majesty overlooks Via dei Fori Imperitali connecting it to the monument of Vittorio Emanuele II King of Italy, monument better known as the “Victorian”.
