Deputy Rome mayor to seek approval for project from Italy's future culture minister.
Rome city council wants to introduce free entry to the Roman Forum, according to plans announced by the capital's deputy mayor and culture councillor Luca Bergamo.
The free-entry proposal would incorporate the entire imperial fora area but would not include the Colosseum or Palatine Hill which currently share the same admission ticket with the Forum.
Bergamo said he would seek approval for the project from the new culture minister following the formation of Italy's next government.
Bergamo's proposal is not exactly new however - entry to the Roman Forum was free until ten years ago when the Forum was subsumed into the Colosseum and Palatine Hill combination ticket.
Under the current system these tickets are valid for one entry to each site for two consecutive days after purchase. For ticket details see website
