Time to Invest in Airports, Museums and the Colosseum
Two recent, devastating fires had put Rome’s Fiumicino airport, host to some 40 million people every year, on front pages worldwide. But what is even more searing is the report this week from Italy’s Transport Minister Graziano Delrio, that for the past two decades the country’s primary international hub has been seriously neglected. This will be remedied, promises Delrio. No less importantly, Culture Minister Dario Franceschini is scheduling major improvements in Italian cultural sites, beginning with the Colosseum.
