Three large chunks of mortar have fallen off from Rome’s famous Colosseum. Luckily, no one was hurt.
Archaeology official Roberto Cecchi said the area involved was already scheduled for maintenance and will be further inspected on Monday.
Meanwhile, the area has been cordoned off and the monument is open as usual for visits.
Although engineers have described the Colosseum as showing extraordinary resistance over the centuries, it is closely monitored.
