Italy | Culture ministry disallows new McDonald's near ancient Baths of Caracalla

ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s Culture ministry on Wednesday barred the construction of a McDonald’s fast-food restaurant next to the ancient Baths of Caracalla in Rome, with Mayor Virginia Raggi saying “the wonders of Rome must be protected”.


Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli announced his decision in a Facebook post after the municipal administration loudly protested against the notion of serving burgers in the archaeological zone that hosts the 3rd century A.D. baths.
