Colosseum leaning? Repair date for December

Tourists take pictures in front of Rome's Colosseum, Tuesday, July 31, 2012. Italian cultural officials say a (euro) 25-million ($30-million) restoration of the Colosseum being paid for by founder of luxury shoemaker Tod's Diego Della Valle,  will begin in December. Officials announced Tuesday that the work is expected to take 2 1/2 years. The ancient Roman arena has been blackened by pollution and rocked by vibrations from a nearby subway line.
