Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO of jewelry company Bulgari, inaugurated the restoration works of the Spanish Steps (Trinità dei Monti).
Luxury jeweller Bulgari, will donate € 1.5 million to the city of Rome to finance the restoration. Thanks to the restoration works one of the most iconic and loved places of Rome will turn to the original beauty.
In the nearby of Spanish Steps (via Sistina) Bulgari founded the first shop in 1884. Later, in 1923, the Bulgari shop in Via Condotti 10 became the only one in Rome and Spanish Steps its symbol.
The restoration will end in spring 2016 but from 7 December onwards the steps will be partially opened to visitors via a ramp during the day. Even though you may be disappointed that you can’t enjoy the Spanish Steps, fear not; there are also plenty of other incredible tourist attractions in and around Rome, so you certainly won’t run out of things to see!
