Rome crumbles as austerity takes hold


Authorities in Rome have warned that austerity measures are hampering the upkeep of the eternal city’s historical sites.

The repairs are expected to cost between 200,000 and 300,000 euros.

The restoration of the Pincio terrace is being blocked by belt-tightening measures.
