Product Information

  • Required Products: None

The Roman Colosseum (originally called Amphitheatrum Flavium - Flavian Amphitheatre) is modelled as it was in its glory days - at the time of the inaugural games in 80 AD, under Roman emperor Titus.

The set contains the famous façade (fascia), seating area (cavea) and all the inner corridors and stairways (vomitoria) in three levels with which the 50.000 spectator amphitheatre could be crowded and emptied in only tens of minutes. The set also has a circular awning stretched over the whole seating area (velarium). Included are the grand entrances for the emperor, vestals, magistrates and gladiators, and the 76 entrance gates for spectators. Also included are the imperial, magistrate and announcer boxes with several props, arena gate of life (porta sanavivaria), gate of death (porta libitinaria) and awnings for the vestal virgins and senators.

The Colosseum is provided with several material options for different sections and smaller props. It is divided in four quarters (2 + 2 instanced) with four separate hideable parts each (facade, cavea, vomitoria and velarium).

The set has many uses: gladiatorial spectacles, fantasy or even sci-fi scenes, contemporary model shoots and romantic/wedding scenes, educational purposes, as a gaming asset (with extended license), for example.

The series of underground corridors and mechanics (hypogeum) is NOT included in this 80 AD version of the Colosseum. The hypogeum was constructed afterwards under emperor Titus’ successor, his brother Domitian. As an extra, simple 1 and 2-sided billboards of tens of thousands spectators are included.
