Part of Domus Aurea Collapses

March 30, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

A portion of the Domus Aurea, Nero’s palace in Rome, reportedly collapsed today due to water damage.  The story appeared on the NYTimes website.   When I visited the Domus Aurea years ago we were all required to wear hard-hats.  Good thing!   The collapse seems to be in a part of the building site that has not been open to visitors.  No reports on whether the rest of the site remains open.
