The Colosseum, Rome, Italy
The Colosseum - Rome - Italy.tif
The Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, is located in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, just east of the Roman Forum. Built of concrete and stone, it was the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, and is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in 70 AD, and was completed in 80 AD under his successor and heir Titus. Further modifications were made during the reign of Domitian (81–96). These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius).
