The Amphitheater in 456 AD it suffered devastating destruction during the sacking of Genseric, but was restore in 530 AD.

During the Gothic and Lombard dominion, the building continued to serve as an arena.

Then, after the destruction of the city in 841 AD by the Saracens, it was transformed into a fortress.

From the period of the Swabian domination it became a quarry for the extraction of stone materials reused in the construction of the buildings of the city.

Partially excavated between 1811 and 1860, it was definitively freed from the enormous masses of soil between 1920 and 1930.

Numerous subsequent conservative restoration interventions over time.
