Colosseum

The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater or simply as Amphitheatrum, is the largest and most important Roman amphitheater that can hold up to 50,000 spectators.

History

Its construction was begun by Vespasian in 72 AC in the center of Rome, in a valley where there was an artificial lake dug by Nero for his Domus Aurea. It was inaugurated by Titus in 80 AC with a hundred days of games and was used for events, public performances as hunting, battles between animals (venationes), killing of prisonners by ferocious beasts or other types of executions (noxii), fights between gladiators (munera), re-enactments of famous battles (naumachia) and dramas based on classical mythology.

During the Jubilee of 1675 the Coliseum became a sacred site in memory of many Christian martyrs here condemned to torture. In 1744 Pope Benedict XIV had built there the Fifteen Stations of the Cross, and in 1749 he declared the Colosseum church devoted to Christ and to the Christian martyrs.

In 1980, along with all the historical center of Rome, it was included in the list of World Heritage of humanity by UNESCO. In 2007 the complex was also included among the Seven Wonders of the modern world.
