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.

A nine-meter section of the wall of the famed Pincio terrace collapsed overnight.

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.
