Ecuadoran tourist cited for writing names on Roman Colosseum
Italian police say a tourist from Ecuador has been cited for inscribing the names of his son and wife and "2017" inside the ancient Roman Colosseum.
Carabinieri Major Lorenzo Iacobone says the tourist was observed in the act of etching by an official tour guide, who reported it to police.
Labor unions have complained about a lack of personnel to prevent visitors from leaving their marks on antiquities.
