2 probed for Rome forum church collapse

Owners of firm that won contract to renovate roof in 2015

(ANSA) - Rome, October 12 - Two people have been placed under investigation in connection with the August 30 collapse of the roof of a church in the Roman forum that stands on the ancient Mamertine Prison, judicial sources said Friday.
    Stefano Di Stefano e Gaetano Correra, owners of the firm that won a contract in 2015 to renovate the roof of the Church of San Giuseppe dei Falegnami, were placed under investigation on suspicion of culpable disaster.
    No one was hurt in the collapse because the church, which is only opened at the weekend for weddings, was closed.
