“Renzo Rosso: The Italian people are tired of this corruption. Because we have too many people who steal, too many people who put the money in his pocket. We have 40 percent of people who don’t pay tax. Can you imagine? Forty percent. It’s unbelievable.”
ROMA – “SAVING ITALY’S HISTORY BECOMES FASHIONABLE,” By: CORRESPONDENT, Morley Safer, ’60 Minutes’, | CBS NEWS (19 Oct. 2015) [VIDEO 13:25].
The following is a script of “Saving History” which aired on Oct. 19, 2014. Morley Safer is the correspondent. David Browning and Sabina Castelfranco, producers.
“…It’s estimated that Italy is home to two-thirds of the world’s cultural treasures. Trouble is, the country is too broke to keep its historic ruins, churches and monuments from crumbling to dust. Italy is up to its neck in debt. Taxes go unpaid. Corruption in an overstuffed bureaucracy is rife. But now some of its most treasured and endangered landmarks are being saved, not by the government, but by a more respected Italian institution: the fashion business. It’s stepped in to rescue some of Italy’s most iconic sites. Among them, the very symbol of its rich, violent and inventive history: the Colosseum in Rome.”
