The Rome city council has once again announced that it will try to clean up Piazza di Spagna. The council plans to enlarge the pavements, allow only small electric buses and city taxis to cross the square and to get rid of illegal parking, leaving only 20 spaces for residents cars. There will be only one parking space for commercial delivery vehicles loading or unloading goods. New flower-beds will be laid out and glass booths will be installed for public telephones. The whole square will be re-paved with cobbles, laid in their original pattern. The work is due to begin in January, when the Christmas shopping season is over and it should be completed within a year. The project is expected to cost e 1,9 million.
