GLADIATORS – HEROES OF THE COLOSSEUM is the first international travelling exhibition developed in collaboration with the Colosseum in Rome, with significant loans from important museums and institutions partly never exhibited outside Italy. This exhibition separates facts from fiction and illustrates the fascinating world of the Gladiators, the heroes of the ancient arenas.
The exhibition unfolds on two paths revealing two protagonists interwoven by destiny: The Gladiators and the Colosseum, the biggest arena of the antiquity.
Through the display of original objects and modern models and
through cutting-edge interactive technology, suggestive graphics and multimedia devices, the life of the Gladiators becomes an immersive and touching experience. Created in collaboration with Contemoranea Progetti.
