Flavian Amphitheatre

Cultural itinerary of the Phlegraean Fields

HISTORICAL DESCRIPTION

The Flavian Amphitheater is one of the two Roman amphitheaters existing in Pozzuoli and it dates back to the second half of the XNUMXst century AD

It was built to cope with the population increase of Puteoli, which had made the old building used for public shows in the republican age.

The Flavian Amphitheater is second only to the Colosseum of Rome and the Campanian amphitheater, in terms of capacity. The construction was attributed to the same architects of the Colosseum, of which it is a little later. Some texts report its construction under Vespasian and its inauguration probably by Titus.
