Romans Say, 'Color Me Angry.'
Under Claudio Strinati, the superintendent of museums, historic buildings undergoing restoration must conform to his office's strict color scheme. For most Renaissance-era structures, this means abandoning the rich hues of southern Italy for the 'original' colors - mostly a mix of pastels and whites. Residents and tourists alike decry the loss of the city's "traditional epidermis."
