Rome prosecutors have opened an investigation into the capital's potholes following complaints from consumer associations, according to Italian news agency ANSA.
There are currently no individuals under investigation and neither are there are possible charges mooted in the probe which comes after the recent snowfall caused further damage to the capital's already potholed streets.
On 8 March the city announced a €17 million plan to fill 50,000 potholes in Rome, at an average of around 1,500 potholes a day, as part of emergency measures to "guarantee the safety" of motorists.
Rome's potholes have become the subject of recent irony on social media, featuring everything from fishermen to crocodiles.
