Description

The Colosseum is an examination of the innovative design and inspired construction of ancient Rome’s most astonishing building. It looks closely at the anonymous architects and laborers involved in the 10-year project, and how once completed its management delighted the Roman crowds with 400 years of the world’s most savage and brutal entertainment spectaculars.
