The famous Roman building will return to its old glory, but tourists will still be able to peek into the history of the Colosseum.
The Colosseum in the Italian capital will soon be renovated, and one of the main innovations will actually be something that this building had in ancient times. Namely, in ancient Rome, thousands of people gathered in this arena to watch captive gladiators and slaves fight wild animals to the death. These fighters and captured animals entered the stage through hidden tunnels under a wooden and sand-covered floor. In all likelihood, the floor returns to the stage.
Namely, Alfonsina Russo, the director of the Colosseum, told Times that he is planning to get this building a new movable floor on which the performances will take place again… Of course, this time not so bloody.
The floor will be able to move so that the basement and underground structures will still be visible to tourists.
Italian authorities have provided 10 million euros for the purchase and installation of a new floor that will restore a part of the history of this ancient building. However, in order to allow tourists to continue to peek into the history of the Colosseum, the basement and underground structures will still be visible.
Namely, the Italian authorities are asking to design and engineering team to make under which it will be able to move and which will be placed above the hypogeum – the rooms that were below it, and which stretched on two floors and had 8 elevators for lifting animals and gladiators directly into the arena, it says The seas. Everyone will be installed with a movable floor door covers, elevators and mechanical elements which were also found in the original Colosseum.
The old glow of 2023
The Colosseum, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, built in the 80’s, was a great engineering endeavor and such an arena had never been seen before. It could accommodate between 50,000 and 80,000 people. Renovation should begin on February 1, and the plan is for the works to be completed by 2023.
