Sangue e Arena

Sangue e Arena. The show at Colosseum

From 12 May, see Sangue e Arena at the Colosseum, a brand-new immersive show reliving the splendours of 100 days of inaugural games held by Emperor Titus between June and September of the year 80 AD.

Immerse yourself in a unique emotional experience featuring multimedia images, virtual reconstructions and holograms projected onto a 17-metre canvas in the amphitheatre arena where the gladiators fought.

Enjoy the expectation and excitement of the public of the past, relived through tales by the poet Martial, an eye-witness to the games and whose epigrams in the Liber de Spectaculis enable us to relive all sorts of past spectacles, including the fantastic aquatic choreographies.
