Interesting article. 816 Million Euros is quite the deficit for one city even if it is Rome. Part of the argument is that the city deserves a bailout from all the countless tourists that flock to the city each year but do not contribute to its fragile economy. In the US, tourism is a money-maker. Tourist spots push the tourism angle because that is what brings in the revenue to support the town and city areas. My question? Why not Rome? The tourists don't contribute to the "fragile" economy? Something doesn't sound right here!
