Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Colosseum was built to host gladiator duels, battle reenactments, and other public spectacles. Now, the 50,000-seat stone-and-concrete amphitheater serves Rome in another capacity: as a traffic circle.

约2000年前,为了举行角斗、战争剧,以及其它公开演出,罗马圆形大剧场建成了。现在,这个5000座的石头混凝土建筑以另一种方式为罗马服务:充当交通环岛。
