Please, do not touch the Colosseum!

The Colosseum has resisted against the centuries, but now it runs the risk to fall into ruin because of stupidity!
Vandals hidden between the tourists take pieces of marble away from Colosseum or write their names and stupid sentences on its ancient stones!
Please, save this patrimony of the world! Guard against vandalism and tell your friends to do the same. Also tell them: “don’t take such kind of souvenirs and don’t write on the Colosseum: it is a criminal action against culture and history“.
Thanks a lot!

Look at these links in Italian language, there are a lot of information and interesting photos:

The “Colosseo” is one of the 3 prestigious monuments that – from 28th untill 30th September – will host 9 lessons given by historians (free entrance). The other two are “Campidoglio” and “Castel Sant’Angelo”.
