Rom, Italien. Neue Argumente zu einer Naumachie im Colosseum. Die Arbeiten der Jahre 2017 und 2018

Since the uncovering of the basement of the Colosseum, archeologists, historians and engineers have been engaged in a bitter controversy over whether or not Naumachia was possible in the Colosseum. Preliminary investigations of a project to cover the arena, in which also the DAI Rome is involved, provided new insights into the canal system in the Colosseum, which gave a new impetus to the discussion about the execution of a Naumachia in the Colosseum.
