GLADIATOR: Italy plans new floor for 2,000-year-old Colosseum


The ancient Roman Colosseum will once again have a floor thanks to a new, hi-tech project which Italy’s culture ministry has announced.

“It is an extraordinary project,” Culture Minister Dario Franceschini said on Sunday as he explained plans to create a flexible floor to give visitors a better sense of how the arena would have looked when gladiators fought to the death in front of crowds of spectators and dignitaries.



“It will allow you to see the majesty of the Colosseum from the centre (of the arena),” he said in a tweet in which he also shared a simulation of what the new floor will look like.

The last floor was removed by archaeologists in the 19th century so they could get a better look at  the labyrinth of rooms and corridors that lay below the arena.
