Gladiators & Secrets of The Colosseum with Marisa Horowitz- Jaffe
Entertainment during the Roman Empire looked quite different than what we seek in modern times. This program explores who a gladiator actually was, how the Colosseum provided a world-renowned stage for these shows, and the various types of gladiatorial spectacle. Coffee & Wine will be served!

About the event
We will explore the architecture of the Roman Colosseum, unearthing its secrets and trap doors, imagining what it must have been like for a gladiator in the arena to face a wild animal from the far reaches of the Roman Empire. We trace modern athletics and sports to their roots in Ancient Rome.
