original boxing gym - il Colosseo

The Colosseum (aka il Colosseo) is the original ringside, the world's largest arena where fight to survive was its main event of: man versus beast.

It could hold an estimation of between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators and was used for gladiatorial contests among other things.

The Colosseo's history spans centuries of bloodbath and political push and pull.  Unlike the ancient Greek Amphitheatre's purpose wherein the events of greek theatre were a means of education for the masses on stories, human and sociological best practices templates on how to live, the Colosseo symbolized a venue where human cutthroat survival was showcased in theatrical form.

It is the original boxing gym.  It represents the base human instinct of kill or be killed.  The Original Gangster venue.
