Restoration of Italian Monuments Proposed

Culture Minister Vincenza Bono Parrino said Thursday that she is proposing a $6.4-billion plan to restore Italy’s monuments.

The program would fund repairs to the country’s ailing architectural treasures over nine years.

The culture minister announced the program during a visit to the northern city of Pavia, where a medieval tower collapsed last Friday, killing four people.

“We spend too little on monuments in our country,” Bono Parrino said. “The tragedy that has hit Pavia will not be forgotten.”
