The 15-year-old reportedly wanted to take a “unique” souvenir home from one of the world’s most famous ancient sites, Italian daily Il Messaggero reported.

During a school trip the girl broke away a brick from the Colosseum, likely placed there when the amphitheatre was built nearly 2,000 years ago, and hid it in her backpack.

She was spotted by another visitor who took a photo and told the site staff, who in turn called the police, according to the newspaper.
