Consumer group wants private Colosseum restoration halted


Rome, April 16 - Consumer group Codacons on
Tuesday turned once again to Italy's top administrative court in
an attempt to block privately-sponsored restoration works on the
country's world-famous monument the Colosseum.
Codacons has an on going legal complaint against the
25-million-euro renovation plan by shoe giant Tod's, claiming
that the bidding process lacked transparency and yielded too
many concessions to the company owned by Diego Della Valle.
The consumer group asked the court to provide previously
deposited acts on sponsorship rights for verification.
Codacons is also asking that the exclusive sponsorship
contract be cancelled and new legal proceedings be opened,
claiming that advertising rights were increased ten-fold over
the original agreement.
The regional administrative court ruled against Codacons'
complaint last summer, but Codacons filed an appeal, which was
also overturned in February.
Restoration work on one of Rome's most important
historical landmarks is set to begin on May 20.
