The Colosseum or Coliseum in Rome was the biggest amphitheatre of the ancient world and served as an example for the arenas of Verona, Arles, Nîmes and many others. In the time of the ancient Romans, the theatre had the name “Amphitheatrum Flavium” which was only in the 11th century replaced by the name “Coliseum” (because of a statue with a height of 35 m). The eliptic building had a length of 188 m and was 156 m wide. It was dedicated in about 80 AD and served as a scene for gladiators’ fights and wild animal hunts. The dedication was celebrated for 100 days. There are differing estimations about how many spectators the Coliseum could actually hold, but one can assume a number of 40,000 to 70,000 people.
Bis ins sechste Jahrhundert wurde es für die Vorführungen verwendet. Ab dem 13. Jahrhundert verfiel es. Es wurde von Erdbeben in Mitleidenschaft gezogen, aber es diente auch als Steinbruch für andere Gebäude. So wurde das Kolosseum mehr und mehr zu einer Ruine, bis man es im Jahr 1749 als Märtyrerstätte der verfolgten Christen weihte. Danach wurden die Reste gesichert und restauriert.
