A display at the Colosseum, Gladiators - is a display of replica gladiatorial weapons, dress and armour made authentically according to nine years of historical research by Silvano Mattesini, a trained architect and expert in ancient Roman military dress.

 

The first documented gladiatorial spectacle in Rome was in 264 B.C. when the two sons of Brutus Pera held the event in honour of their (deceased) father.
