Ministry stops plans for Baths of Caracalla McDonald's (2)

Plan for outlet in area of ancient site stopped

(ANSA) - Rome, July 31 - Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli said Wednesday that his ministry has stopped plans for a new McDonald's restaurant close to one of Rome's most remarkable ancient sites - the Baths of Caracalla. "Having already expressed my opposition to a fast food restaurant in the Baths of #Caracalla archaeological area, I inform you that the culture ministry has annulled the authorization," Bonisoli said on Facebook.
    Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi, who had also come out strongly against the plan, welcomed the move.
    "The wonders of Rome must be protected," she said.
