  • Description

    A 27-year-old street hawker maintained an icy, week-long vigil on top of Rome's famous Colosseum because the civil authorities wouldn't grant him a street-trader's license. Dante Ottaviani clambered to the top of the ancient monument on January 10 after police confiscated some radios he was selling. On Sunday (16 January), he was completing his first week on top of the Colosseum.

    On Monday (17 January), he finally abandoned his protest when a Rome municipal council official promised Ottaviani he'd get a license.
