Net around Rome's Netflix-sponsored tree to prevent accidents and theft.
Rome's Netflix-sponsored Christmas tree has lost a little of its magic following the installation of a large net under the base of the 20-m high fir in Piazza Venezia.
Traffic police told daily newspaper La Repubblica that the netting was to prevent visitors from being hit by falling decorations as well as to stop anyone from stealing one of the 500 baubles as a "souvenir."
The Christmas tree, which cost its sponsor €376,000, is protected by 24-hour surveilance and security, funded by Netflix.
