Italy bars McDonald's amidst monuments of ancient Rome



ROME, July 31 (Reuters) – McDonald's fast-food restaurant next to the ancient Baths of Caracalla in Rome, with Mayor Virginia Raggi saying "the wonders of Rome must be protected. "

Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli announces his decision in a post office post the municipal administration loudly protested against the notion of serving burgers in the archaeological zone that hosts the 3rd century AD baths.

"" We go forward with the culture to stop food construction in the archaeological area of ​​the Baths of Caracalla. Raggi wrote on Twitter after Bonisoli's announcement.

McDonald's did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

McDonald's has more than 40 outlets in the Italian capital, some of them in the vicinity of landmarks such as the Piazza Navona, Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps) and the Vatican, but not hitherto in the midst of its revered ancient quarter.

In 1986, intellectuals and television personalities fought, ultimately in vain, against the opening of McDonald's in the Piazza di Spagna, calling it open to Italy's traditional food culture.

In the Case of the Baths of Caracalla, McDonald's outlet said:

The McDonald's is located between the Baths and the ancient Aur elian walls, a few hundred yards away from the Coliseum and the Circus Maximus.

According to website statista.com, Italy last year had the fourth highest number of McDonald's restaurants in the European Union with 578, behind only Germany , France and Britain. (Reporting by Angelo Amante Editing by Mark Heinrich)
