Logline: Coliseum is a documentary about the Coliseum, one of the wonders in modern time. The documentary tells the monument’s story throughout the main events of its history from the day of its inauguration in 80 A.D. until the most modern restorations.
Production Note:Coliseum was commissioned by and produced for Capitalia Bank (now merged in the Unicredit Group) by MaXaM Productions in association with Rotella and Partners SpA and with the Soprintendenza delle Belle Arti fo Rome. A 5-minute version of it was screened in loop on twenty video-walls displaced along Via dei Fori Imperiali, just outside of the Coliseum, for Simon & Garfunkel’s concert in Rome in July 2004. A longer version was then broadcast by the Italian National TV.
