ROME – COLOSSEUM- COLISEUM


This time I am going to present the slightly older, but still impressive building, the largest ever amphiteatre built in Roman Empire.

Located in the heart of Rome, to the east of the Roman Forum.It was constructed in 80 AD and until today is a wonderfull example of almost perfect, undoubtly beautyful architecture, transcendent patern for future thousands of stadiums.

The builders used all their knowledge and put a maximum effort to make sure that every element of the edifice was to ceasars standards and as technologicaly advanced as nowhere in the world, at those days.

They used a very steady travertine stone which gives the  building a yellowish hue,  the half collumns and pillars were all in  roman architectural style, following : roman doric, roman ionic, roman corinthian which seems to be the perfect solution giing the lightness and an illusion as if the building was rising to the sky.

 

Very popular those days in rome but how greatly practical and functional use of the roman arches,vaults, which were able to add some bigger openings to the really massive walls and on the other hand it was an excellent way of making the built more stylish, and more decorative.

They proposed almost impossible as for those time capacity of the building ,and the building was capable of seating          50 000 spectactors.


The ideal way of a drainage, superb design of a stage with it’s lots of facilities for the performers, and a spotless outlook for the audience.


Today it’s condition is slightly deteriorated but the structure is still considered as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.            Here you will find out more about the Colosseum

    I comment each time I appreciate a post on a site or I have something to contribute to the conversation. It’s triggered by the fire
    displayed in the article I read. And after this post ROME – COLOSSEUM- COLISEUM |.
    I was moved enough to leave a thought 😉 I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it just me or does it seem like some of the comments look like coming
    from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I’d like to follow you.
    Could you make a list all of all your shared sites like your Facebook page,
    twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
