Location

Rome, Italy

The Coliseum is an amphitheatre located in the centre of Rome, Italy, built in the first century by the Romans.[1]

History

In 1754, the Coliseum was selected as the finishing line in a broom race from Aberdeen to Rome between famous fliers Torquil McTavish and Silvio Astolfi, and government representatives and supporters gathered there to await their arrival. However, just as the pair were seen flying toward the ancient amphitheatre, a clash broke out between rival factions of fans. During the fight, an explosion was somehow set off, leaving the Coliseum in ruins. Orabella Nuttley stepped forward and repaired a few columns with the Mending Charm she had invented. Amazed, the assembled ministers asked her to teach them how to perform it, and the damage to the Coliseum was undone by the time that Muggles woken up by the sound of the explosion arrived at the scene.[2]
