Raggi in appeal agst Colosseum archeo park (3)

(ANSA) - Rome, April 21 - Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi said Friday her administration had appealed to the regional administrative court (TAR) to quash a decree setting up an archaeological park around the Colosseum. Setting up the park, Raggi's council said, is "harmful to the interests of Roma Capitale". The mayor added: "it is unacceptable that there should be Serie A and Serie B zones in Rome". In February the selection process to appoint a general manager for the newly created Colosseum Archaeological Park was launched with an international call for applicants on the culture ministry's website - The successful candidate will sign a four-year contract and have an annual salary of 145,000 euros, plus bonuses of up to 35,000 euros. "This is the last, most prestigious, piece of the reform of the national museum system," said Culture Minister Dario Franceschini, who was behind plans to attract top international managers to Italy's most important museums. In addition to the Colosseum itself, the archaeological park also includes the Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum and the Domus Aurea.
