Rome's mayor invites diplomats to help drum up funds to preserve neglected cultural artifacts

Reported by: Associated Press

Rome's mayor has met with a group of diplomats in an effort to drum up money to help restore some of the eternal city's most neglected artifacts.

Mayor Ignazio Marino said Monday that Rome's treasures should be considered heritage "for all mankind" and asked representatives from around the world to help create a foundation to manage cultural sites.

The foundation would oversee the cataloguing of 100,000 excavated Roman-era artifacts and restore the unkempt gladiator-training grounds next to the Colosseum — among many other projects on the mayor's wish list.

This initiative is the latest in a string of efforts to fund preservation in Rome amid steep budget cuts and economic troubles in Italy. In recent years, Italian luxury companies have stepped in, donating large sums to restore top attractions.
