Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

           The famous ancient Roman architecture that I find to be most fascinating is the Colosseum. The Colosseum was an amphitheater, or a circular theater built for action where the spectators sit around the field. Modern amphitheaters, like the Roman colosseum, have maintained the same basic circular structure with spectator seating surrounding the main stage and ascending upward. Most modern amphitheaters are used for major sporting events like football. The Colosseum in ancient Rome was built for violent sporting events like gladiator fighting. Despite the differences in modern materials and architecture I imagine the crowds watching ancient Roman gladiator fights and the ones sitting close to the field during The Superbowl would have had similar feelings and emotions about the spectacle they were watching.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
