It seems to me to be a fascist-style sustenance that a municipality will be forced to review,” Vittorio Sgarbi told AdnKronos, an Italian news agency, per The Guardian.
The stairs were built in a 18th century and bond a Piazza di Spagna to a Trinità dei Monti church. They are located roughly 15 mins northeast of a Pantheon on foot.
