About Course

History and teachings
Known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Roman Colosseum is one of the capital’s most remarkable monuments.

The Colosseum is the largest ancient amphitheatre ever built, and is still the largest standing amphitheatre in the world today, despite its age. Its construction began under the emperor Vespasian. It has become an icon, by its exceptional architecture, the fame of the gladiators and spectacles, its popularity through the centuries, from its medieval and Christian reuse and the ideological versions that have made it the symbol of an empire and today of the city of Rome and the world. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Cross-cultural dimensions
The Colosseum is still an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome and was listed as one of the New7Wonders of the World. It is one of Rome’s most popular tourist attractions and also has links to 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
