The Roman Colosseo, aged 1939 years, is one of those monuments that just throw you back in history. I love looking at people who first see it: big eyes, open mouth and an “Oh my God!” sigh.
It is the biggest Roman amphitheatre. Actually it represented part of the common strategy* of Roman emperors to offer their citizens “panem et circenses”. In other words, give people bread and games and you’ll avoid problems. If they wanted to save their lives, gladiators were forced to fight other slaves or ferocious beasts in front of an the audience of the 50,000 persons the Colosseo could contain. Incredible engineering techniques were used to surprise the audience. Just imagine the 80 elevators used to let gladiators and animals reach the scene at the same time. Just think of how many people had to pull the ropes so as to lift each elevator and the perfect direction needed for such… live shows.
I must not forget to tell you the monument was as high as a 17 floor building: 52 metres.

* I would say this strategy did not change a lot from the year 72 until our days… :-)

Interresting picture.
It's not your fault but I imagine that with a more cloudy sky it would have been more powerful.

In Summer you can get clouds only if you draw them on the sky yourself...
