Yup the first full complete wash up since it was built this Wall Street Journal article says.

Unfortunately scaffolding will be up on parts of it until 2016.

A good thing is that there will be a proper Visitors' Center created.

Hopefully the cleansing wil include giving the broom to all those various tacky sales of stuff right outside its entrance - those tacky flying metal birds, bird seed and hopefully IMO those fake gladiators who posed for pictures for pay will be swept away as well.

Anyway the Colosseum should soon shine unlike it has for ages.
