The Anfiteatro was created at the time of Augustus. It ranks among the top five amphitheaters left by the Romans in Italy. Like the Greek theater, part of it was carved from rock. Unlike the Greek Theater and its classical plays, the Roman amphitheater tended toward more gutsy fare. Gladiators - prisoners of war and "exotic" blacks from Africa - faced each other with tridents and daggers, or naked slaves would be whipped into the center of a to-the-death battle between wild beasts. Either way, the victim lost. If his combatants, man or beast, didn't do him in, the crowd would often scream for the ringmaster to slit his throat.
