The Roman amphitheatre in Verona (north-east Italy) was built in 30 CE, outside the ancient city walls. The facility could accommodate up to 30,000 people and is an example of a beautifully preserved Roman monument.
Despite a strong earthquake in 1117, the building stands to this day. The construction is still used for carrying out cultural events, including opera concerts. Originally, the amphitheatre was built of white and pink limestone, what changed after the aforementioned cataclysm, which collapsed most of the outer structure.
