On the site of an artificial lake in Nero’s Golden House, the Flavian emperors built an amphitheater that was to become a symbol of Rome itself – the Colosseum. Learn the odd origin of its nickname, the Colosseum, study the intricacies of its construction, and trace its long history from its days of glory through centuries of abandonment and neglect to its final rescue and stabilization.
