Originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Roman Colosseum Wall is an oval structure and known to be one of the largest amphitheatres built during the Roman era. For a long time, the Roman Colosseum has been the single most identifiable spot in Rome, which is why it is most commonly depicted in paintings, on TV shows and movies as well as in the form of souvenirs like fridge magnets. It is actually impossible for tourists to visit Rome and leave without some souvenir of the Roman Colosseum and for most of them, this black and white acrylic touch on a fridge magnet is extremely appropriate since it gives an ancient and sophisticated finish to the surface of the souvenir.
