(ANSA) - Rome, September 5 - An 11-square-meter area around
Rome's world-famous Colosseum was cordoned after pieces fell
from the monument's highest arcade, sounding alarms over the
2,000-year-old monument's 'health'.
On Wednesday, the city's cultural heritage superintendent
and fire department authorities were on site to evaluate the
extent of the damage and the overall state of the amphitheater.
Plans for a major restoration of the Colosseum have
overcome legal challenges and the work to be funded by shoe
magnate Diego Della Valle will start in 2013.
Surveyors on Wednesday say that adverse weather conditions
over the recent days contributed to the damage to the facade of
the Colosseum or Flavian Amphitheatre, considered one of the
greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering.
