The restoration of the Colosseum in Rome, a €25 million project financed by Diego Della Valle of Tod's, can move forward with the Gherardi construction group following a ruling by Italy's highest administrative court, the Council of State, on a legal battle brought by a rival contractor, Lucci. The court upheld a previous decision by the Regional Administrative Court, which found that Lucci had not produced adequate documentation to prove the technical planning capabilities required to undertake the project. This ruling is the second of two appeals about the project. The first was brought by Codacons, an Italian consumer group, on the grounds that the project lacked transparency and gave too many concessions to Della Valle. That one was settled by the Council of State in July 2013, when the court rejected the group's final appeal.
