Cracks Expanding In Rome's Colosseum Following Recent Earthquakes

A string of recent earthquakes in central Italy, culminating in the country's most powerful earthquake in 35 years, have shaken Rome and caused expanding cracks to appear in the Colosseum:

The worst earthquake to hit Italy in three decades has added troubling cracks to the Colosseum, threatening the country’s most popular historic landmark.

Francesco Prosperetti, the special superintendent for the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, said that each earthquake put ever more dangerous strain on the 2,000-year-old arena.

“With the earthquake the cracks are increasing,” Mr Prosperetti told Corriere della Sera.
