The producers of the PBS science series NOVA and the Embassy of Italy in Washington, DC invite you to a special sneak peek screening event featuring NOVA's upcoming film, "Colosseum – Roman Death Trap" followed by a panel discussion and audience Q & A.

How did the ancient Romans magically release wild beasts into the Colosseum? Join NOVA and an extraordinary team of architects, archaeologists, and engineers in search of the answer to this age-old question. Watch as these experts decipher clues in the basement of the Colosseum and build their own lift and trap door system, ultimately installing it in the most famous amphitheater in the world, and--for the first time in 1500 years--release a wolf into Rome's great arena.
