The Colosseum or Coliseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium; Italian: Anfiteatro

Flavio or Colosseo) is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy. Built of concrete and stone,[1] it

was the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, and is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture

and engineering. It is the largest amphitheatre in the world.[2]



The Colosseum is situated just east of the Roman Forum. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in 70 AD,

[3] and was completed in 80 AD under his successor and heir Titus.[4] Further modifications were made during the reign

of Domitian (81–96).[5] These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in

Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius).



Although in the 21st century it stays partially ruined because of damage caused by devastating earthquakes and stone-

robbers, the Colosseum is an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome. It is one of Rome's most popular tourist attractions and

has close connections with the Roman Catholic Church, as each Good Friday the Pope leads a torchlit "Way of the

Cross" procession that starts in the area around the Colosseum.[8]



The Colosseum could hold, it is estimated, between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators,[6][7] and was used for gladiatorial

contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles,

and dramas based on Classical mythology. The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era.

It was later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a

Christian shrine.



The Colosseum is also depicted on the Italian version of the five-cent euro coin
