Cultural itinerary of the Phlegraean Fields

DESCRIPTION

The minor amphitheater of Pozzuoli was a theater of ancient Roman construction, of which unfortunately few ruins remain today. This is a classic Roman amphitheater of the Augustan or pre-Augustan period.

The minor and ancient Puteolan amphitheater, over time became inadequate to the needs of the gladiators and to the population of the area, which is why a second one was subsequently built, theFlavian Amphitheatre, of vastly larger capacity and a very short distance from the first.

The minor amphitheater was discovered and partially brought to light during the works for the construction of the railway line, which ruined it by crossing it centrally. Currently it is possible to see some traces of it along Via Vigna or Via Solfatara.
