Bulgari to restore Rome's Largo Argentina site

Largo Argentina to become accessible to visitors thanks to Bulgari.

Rome's archaeological site at Largo di Torre Argentina is to be restored in a €1 million project sponsored by luxury jeweller Bulgari, with a completion date in the second half of 2021.

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi has thanked Bulgari for what she describes as an "act of love for the city" while the deputy mayor Luca Bergamo said the site's many cats would not be disturbed.

The works will reportedly include a new entry into the site, including elevator access, under the tower, with new paths around the archaeological area.

The so-called sacred area of Largo Argentina is best known as being the scene of Julius Caesar's assassination; it is also the home of a popular cat sanctuary.

The plan to restore the site follows Bulgari's €1.5 million restoration of the Spanish Steps in 2016.
