Colosseo durante la Notte

(The Coliseum at Night)

Completed in 80 A.D. and capable of seating 50,000 spectators, the Coliseum is an elliptical amphitheater in the center of the city of Rome and is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering.  The coliseum was used for gladiatorial contests, public spectacles, and dramas based on classical mythology. A marvel of ancient engineering, mock sea battles were even staged (the coliseum had a vast aqueduct system allowing the arena to be flooded).

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of ordering a print, please contact me for details. All photographs are limited to 500 reproductions.

Notes: These are low resolution images and I apologize for the watermark signature on my photographs as I feel it detracts from enjoying the image. However, with the ease of image piracy on-line they are necessary evils. You may also want to read my color post as images can be very different from what you see on the monitor.
