The Colosseum Show: Blood and Arena
Multimedia images, virtual reconstructions and the use of holograms projected on a giant canvas offer a unique, adrenaline-filled experience. Images, lights, sounds, and music translate what really happened in those days. The tales of the poet Martial - an eyewitness of those first Colosseum games - bring the anticipation and the excitement of the audience of the time to life. Thanks to Martial’s epigrams in the “Liber de spectaculis” (“Book of Games”), you’ll experience the various types of entertainment offered almost 2,000 years ago - included the fantastic aquatic choreography of sea battles.
