Vandalism on Roman monuments
Vandalism on Roman monuments

In 2015 happened another example of vandalism on the majestic monument of Rome. Two young (21 and 25 years old) American women carved with a coin letters on the ancient wall. Then they made a “selfie” on her background. Other visitors noticed this, and the protection called for the carabinieri. This is another act of vandalism on Roman monuments.

The press reminds that in November 2014, a Russian tourist carved a huge initial on the restored passage of the Colosseum. He was sentenced immediately to 4 months of suspended detention and 20, 000 euros fine.

Also recently, a 15-year-old Canadian student during a school trip broke off a piece of the Flavian Amphitheater wall and tried to hide it in his backpack. Other, a 12-year-old Australian, carved his name, once his father hepled him.
