The modern day theater is based of the great coliseum of Rome. The only exception is that the coliseum had deadly performances but now we have plays and musicals where we act. Still the modern day theater was changed from the old theater but still it gave us the idea of theater and acting.
The government from Rome was titled the republic. The republic is a government where every citizen has a voice. This choice of government has been United States form of government for the past 246 years. The US is working on having a better republic though, for Rome's republic fell to ruins and became a imperial time period.
The main building’s we have used from back then are the column and the arch. These great pieces of art are both seen in the modern day White House and many churches around the globe. Therefore these pieces of work have helped modern day architecture.
