    Some 2,000 years ago "Domus Aurea" stood in what was the heart of Rome - now Italy has launched an appeal for funds to restore the complex in its entirety.

    Cool. I'd like to see that it after restoration.

    It just struck me that a large chunk of Italy's budget has to be tied up in preservation/restoration of historical relics. I hope museums charge enough to make this worthwhile - otherwise it sounds like a potential financial black hole.

    Ironic that the palace erected on the land made vacant while Nero fiddled may now go unrepaired while Rome fiddles ;)
