The Colosseum, known in ancient Rome with the Latin name Amphitheatrum Flavium (in Italian: Anfiteatro Flavio) or simply Anfiteatro, is the largest amphitheater in the world. The name "Colosseum" spread in the Middle Ages and derives from the popular deformation of the Latin adjective "colosseum" ("colossal") for its grandeur, compared to the small constructions of the time. The Colosseum is located in the heart of the city of Rome. It is the most important Roman amphitheater, and also the most impressive monument of ancient Rome that we are fortunate to inherit. The Anfiteatro is now known all over the world as a symbol of the city of Rome and one of the most iconic symbols of Italy. It was built at the behest of the emperors of the Flavian dynasty in the first century AD. Its construction was started by Vespasiano in 72 AD. and inaugurated by Titus in 80, with further modifications made during the empire of Domitian; all three Roman emperors in different historical periods. Until the end of the ancient age, the Colosseum welcomed popular performances, such as gladiatorial fights, hunting shows, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on classical mythology. The Colosseum was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1980. In 2007, this important monument was also included among the New Seven Wonders of the World, by a competition organized by the New Open World Corporation. The archaeological circuit of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine attract every year more than 6 million visitors. This is the second most visited Italian state museum site, after the Pantheon. ...read
