The world famous Colosseum in Rome is getting a major makeover. The biggest change: the open-air theater will soon have a floor again.
About the Colosseum
The Colosseum is one of the most famous buildings in the world. It is located in the Italian capital Rome. The theater is about 2000 years old. It used to hold about 50,000 spectators.
Various architects submitted their designs. Ultimately, an idea won, whereby the floor can be opened and closed. In this way the corridors underneath can still be seen.
The project comes with a nice price tag. The floor will cost around 18.5 million euros. Everything must be ready by 2023.
