Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


This article attempts to investigate the Milan amphitheater by taking into account cartographic, toponymic and archaeological data. The review of the documentation allows us to propose a new building plan, based on a recent survey of the structures in sight, and to reconstruct its main architectural features. This very impressive monument, with its double-gallery of the ground floor, as well as the alternating Classical orders on the façade, exceptionally composed of three superimposed tiers of arcades and an attic storey, was a conscious emulation of the Colosseum. Therefore, its dating to the first decades of the I century AD suggested by the last excavations, seems to be unconvincing; its building must be more recent, probably between the end of the I and the beginning of the II century AD
