A 78-year-old woman was hospitalised after part of the street she was walking on collapsed on Via Catania, near Piazza Bologna, on 15 January, according to Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica.
Firefighters rescued the woman after she fell off the pavement into the two-metre hole which opened with no prior warning.
It was the latest in a series of similar incidents in recent months including a four-metre-deep chasm that opened up at a junction on Via Ambrosini in the Montagnola suburb on 22 November.
