The Coliseum

The Coliseum is one of Rome’s most famous monuments. It’s a giant ancient theater in the shape of a circle, called an amphitheater. It’s right in the middle of Rome, with traffic circling it at high speed all the time. It was built over 2,000 years ago, and held up to 50,000 spectators. People would go there to see gladiators fighting or other kinds of entertainment such as animal displays, executions, and plays. It was one of the greatest spectacles of ancient Rome.
But the problem facing the people of Rome today is what to do with it now. It is very old, very damaged, and in the middle of a busy traffic route. The air pollution caused by traffic is destroying it. To preserve it, the roads around it could be closed, but that would create problems when driving from one part of Rome to the other. Some people say that cars shouldn’t be allowed near it, and special public transportation should be designed to take people around it. They want plans to be developed for this, and believe the Coliseum deserves to be treated especially carefully because it is so unique. The structure of the building has already been damaged because of pollution, and the way the traffic shakes its foundation. Something has to be done soon.
Another problem is the damage caused by visitors. In fact, some people think it should be closed to the public, and that it should be opened only for very special reasons, like making films, holding concerts, or church festivals. The problem is that the huge numbers of tourists who visit it bring a lot of money into the city. The Coliseum continues to be seen as an extremely important part of historical Rome, so everyone wants to go there. But the number of people who come end up causing damage to the building. Many people feel that if city authorities go on allowing people to visit the Coliseum, only a certain number of people should be allowed
to visit each year, in the same way that visitor numbers are limited at Machu Picchu in Peru, for example. One thing is for certain; the future of the Coliseum cannot be guaranteed until something is done.

1 The Coliseum is an __________________________.

2 It was built __________________________ years ago.

3 It can hold __________________________ people.

4 It was originally used for fights, animal displays, executions, and __________________________.

5 The Coliseum is at risk because there’s too much __________________________ around it.

The Coliseum

The Coliseum is one of Rome’s most famous monuments. It’s a giant ancient theater in the shape of a circle, called an amphitheater. It’s right in the middle of Rome, with traffic circling it at high speed all the time. It was built over 2,000 years ago, and held up to 50,000 spectators. People would go there to see gladiators fighting or other kinds of entertainment such as animal displays, executions, and plays. It was one of the greatest spectacles of ancient Rome.
But the problem facing the people of Rome today is what to do with it now. It is very old, very damaged, and in the middle of a busy traffic route. The air pollution caused by traffic is destroying it. To preserve it, the roads around it could be closed, but that would create problems when driving from one part of Rome to the other. Some people say that cars shouldn’t be allowed near it, and special public transportation should be designed to take people around it. They want plans to be developed for this, and believe the Coliseum deserves to be treated especially carefully because it is so unique. The structure of the building has already been damaged because of pollution, and the way the traffic shakes its foundation. Something has to be done soon.
Another problem is the damage caused by visitors. In fact, some people think it should be closed to the public, and that it should be opened only for very special reasons, like making films, holding concerts, or church festivals. The problem is that the huge numbers of tourists who visit it bring a lot of money into the city. The Coliseum continues to be seen as an extremely important part of historical Rome, so everyone wants to go there. But the number of people who come end up causing damage to the building. Many people feel that if city authorities go on allowing people to visit the Coliseum, only a certain number of people should be allowed
to visit each year, in the same way that visitor numbers are limited at Machu Picchu in Peru, for example. One thing is for certain; the future of the Coliseum cannot be guaranteed until something is done.
