"It would be nice to replicate the Anglo-Saxon model in Italy": Billionaire Diego Della Valle talks to Forbes about his mission to restore the Colosseum.

"Diego Della Valle took a small shoe factory his grandfather started and turned it into global shoe- and purse-maker Tod’s S.p.A., sharing the multi-billion dollar fortune with his brother. Diego is the company’s chairman and public face, and is now trying to change the face of philanthropy in Italy, a nation where private giving is low compared to the U.S. His biggest project to date: saving Rome’s Colosseum." -- Tatiana Serafin, Forbes
