Rome wants you: city officials presented €500 mln plan to restore historic icons

Ever been to Rome and admired the city's picturesque monuments? Now, the capital of Italy wants you to help preserve them for the next millennium and beyond. Rome is seeking out all the possible sponsors it can find to fund the restoration and maintenance its hundreds of historic fountains, statues, archaeological sites and palazzos. The city has repeatedly been short of funds to properly take care of its various landmarks, which represent a two-millennia legacy of art and history.

On Tuesday, city officials thanked corporate sponsors of ambitious restoration projects taking place. Among their donors are luxury goods companies such as Fendi, which has put up money to restore several famed fountains, including a tourist favorite, Trevi, and Bulgari, which is sponsoring the restoration of the Spanish Steps. Officials said the nation of Azerbaijan has helped to restore a room of the Capitoline Museums, while lighting that has made the boulevard flanking the Imperial Forums a popular romantic evening stroll was paid for by Unilever and Acea, a local utility company.

But Rome is hungry for more such generosity, corporate and otherwise. On Tuesday, officials launched the "100 proposals for patrons" campaign listing projects they hope sponsors — including rank-and-file citizens — will step forward to "adopt." They include fountains near the Pantheon, in Piazza Navona and in Villa Borghese park; Trajan's Bath, Trajan's Forum and archaeological study of an area near Caesar's Forum. One proposed "adoption" is at City Hall's front steps: the piazza atop a stepped ramp designed by Michelangelo. Another proposal is Ludus Magnus, a site of what was the main training school for gladiators, just up the road from the Colosseum. Also on the "adoptable" list is the Sacred Area of Largo Argentina, which includes ruins of several Republican-era temples smack in the middle of a traffic-clogged square. The city is hoping someone will fork out over 1.5 million euros ($1.65 million) to restore the site.

Modern-day versions of Renaissance merchant princes like the Medici could also mean long-closed monuments, like the Mausoleum of Augustus, might open to tourists. For proud Romans, such closures are "like having a room closed in our house," said Claudio Parisi Presicce, the city superintendent of artistic and archaeological heritage. Restoration experts have long bemoaned that prestigious monuments like the Colosseum readily find sponsors while less famous monuments in dire need of repair go begging for patrons. Cleaning and reinforcement work at the Colosseum costing some $34 million is being paid for by the founder of Tod's luxury leather goods and shoes.

Claudio Parisi Presicce told a press conference that he believed the city could call in some of the reserves of goodwill given Rome's central role in the construction of Western civilization. "We need new strategic ideas. We have to create a link between the people living above the modern city and the ancient city that lies beneath them," he said. "We need help to ensure Rome continues to be a reference point in terms of beauty for the whole world" said Tronca.

That headquarters building looks like the Pillar of Autumn from Halo or a Sandcrawler from Star Wars.

Libeskind shouldn't design skyscrapers. I mean, wtf, come on. Especially not 3 of them!

You can do much, much better Roma, and I hope you'll show us how.

The Colosseum has a new face: white and clean


Roman emperors (but also the gladiators) might be satisfied and, perhaps, a little proud. The first phase of the restoration project of the Colosseum, one of the world’s most famous landmarks, is finished. The ancient amphitheater now is back white and clean. The restoration work, started five years ago and entirely sponsored by the chairman of the Italian luxury shoemaker Tod's Diego Della Valle, cost €25 million. “The Colosseum was to be restored, we were asked to do it and we said yes, and today I want to tell many friends, colleagues and employers there are so many other things to do and that should be done” said Della Valle.

On Friday there was a press conference inside the Colosseum to celebrate the first complete cleanup of the amphitheater’s walls. It was an opportunity to take stock of the work carried out and, above all, to sum up the next stages. After the facades, there will be a fresh phase of restoration work, which will focus on the inside of the Colosseum, repairing its passageways and underground vaults. A new utility system will be installed and a service centre for visitors will be built, allowing visitors to access from the outer area of the Colosseum as opposed to where this stands now, within the walls of the arena.

The public sector is also “doing its job”: €18.5 million of public money has already been set aside to extend the central floor of the Colosseum in order to make it more suitable as a venue for cultural events. “The works to restore the Arena should be completed in three years (starting from August 2015, when the Ministry allocated €18.5 million for this project-Editor's note), then in 2018,” Italian culture minister Dario Franceschini told journalists. “When the arena's completed, this place will be even more beautiful. It will be great for the tourists who will be able to see the Colosseum from the centre of the arena,” Franceschini added. The meeting was attended also by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who said the “mammoth clean-up project” is “ an example for protecting the country's vast cultural heritage.”

The first phase of the works has now been completed and was carried out on the northern and southern faades, totaling a surface area of approximately 13,300 square meters. Restorers have delicately cleaned more than 10,000 square meters of the stone facade with natural-fibre brushes, applying 1,700 kilograms of lime putty and filler into cracks in the surface, while the monument remained opened to throngs of tourists.It also included the replacement of the current arch enclosure system with new gates. Now it’s time for starting the second half of the game: after the exterior of the structure, the restoration of the Arena. Lions or wild animals allowing.

So, once finished, the tallest skyscraper of Rome will also become the tallest skyscraper of Italy - as it will stand 1 meter taller than the Unicredit Tower of Milan.
