The real life of the most famous fighters of Ancient Rome
Who were the Roman gladiators?
Is everything they say about them true?
Is "The Gladiator" movie accurated?
Did female gladiators exist?
These and many other questions will be answered during this virtual tour focused on the most popular entertainment in Ancient Rome: the gladiatorial combat.
Thanks to the original documents that tell the true story of the Roman gladiators, along with my expertise as an archaeologist, we will follow the steps every gladiator took from the training school to the arena.
Fresco paintings, mosaics and graffiti will bring the ruins of the Colosseum and the many other ancient Roman amphitheatres to life for you!
