Two daredevils took up the challenge – climbing the walls of the Roman Colosseum. The question that arose is whether the building is adequately protected?
The film showing the feat of two Germans has become extremely popular on the Internet. It was posted two months ago. The daredevils climbed the Colosseum under the cover of night and then filmed the panorama of Rome. Young men, belonging to the group “Visual Enemies”, claim that they did not destroy the monument in any way. After the video was published, the police began receiving calls to punish the daredevils financially or even with imprisonment. The main accusation was that the cultural heritage was not respected and the monument was damaged.
Currently, there is a discussion about whether the Flavian Amifeatre and similar buildings in Italy are well protected against similar vices. As one of the readers of La Repubblica wrote – if a similar incident took place in Germany, for example at the Brandenburg Gate, the men would be arrested and punished just 2 minutes after their climb.
