that stage is put there to show us how the real stage was set up. When the audience was ready to see the animals and the gladiators fight, the stage was lifted so that the cages could come up. The stage was made of sand and wood...so that it could absorb the blood and they could clean up easier.

The Colosseum used to be white marble and each of those holes had a gold leaf in it. Can you imagine how beautiful it looked???
