June 1 The Archaeological Park of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum, Domus Aurea opens in Rome
The Colosseum. Almost everyone believes that the name by which the Flavian Amphitheater is known derives from its exceptional dimensions 189 x 156 meters. 48 meters high with a capacity of 50,000 spectators. In reality it seems to relate to the nearby bronze statue of Nero. A colossus then destroyed over time.
