Paving over History

01rome650

What do you think about this?

Because of the damage to statues and buildings due to the vibrations vehicles going over Rome's cobblestone streets, the city has begun to pave over them with asphalt.

Anyone who has been to Rome understands why my heart breaks at this picture, but apparently the city was going broke trying to keep up with repairs of the potholes and the damages to buildings the 2000 year old sampietrini (St. Peter's little stones) caused.
