Rome seeks funds to restore Nero's palace

4 posts in this topic

ROME , June 20 (UPI) --The city of Rome has begun an appeal to find $42.5 million to restore the former palace of Emperor Nero, which currently sits under an amusement park.

Requests to help rebuild ancient Roman sites have become common, with Saudi princes and business entrepreneurs donating funds to restore significant architecture to former glory. Archeologists of Italy's cultural heritage ministry announced Wednesday it intends to remove the amusement park and remove hundreds of tons of soil currently burying the Domus Aurea, the "Golden House" or palace of Nero (37-68 AD), who was Rome's emperor from 54 AD to 68 AD and left a reputation for lavish living.

just the place to provide the seat for the President of the EU. Maybe they're hoping to replace Brussels as the capital of the Empire.

Bill Gates should cough up a billion to restore the Colosseum or the Parthenon.
