Go-ahead announced for Colosseum restoration to begin


(ANSA) - Rome, July 26 - The definitive nod has been given
for restoration works on Rome's Colosseum to begin on July 31
after two years of stalls.
Rome Mayor Gianni Alemmano said at a Wednesday conference
that it was "a great victory for Rome and culture".
Works were delayed when consumer group Codacons challenged
the private-sponsorship deal between the culture ministry and
shoe king Diego Della Valle.
The 25-million-euro contract covers the much-needed
renovation of Rome's most famous monument, which will take 24-36
months to complete, involves restoring the north and south
facades and the underground areas, and building a
1,600-square-meter reception area with a bookshop.
In exchange, Della Valle's group will have exclusive
rights to place their logo on a two-meter panel for 15 years.
The Colosseum is close to 2,000 years old and hasn't had a
much-needed facelift in 75 years.
