A new high tech arena for the Colosseum, apparently coming very soon, this time for real:

English: https://www.archpaper.com/2020/12/italy-is-adding-a-new-floor-to-the-colosseum-pitfalls-traps-and-all/

I don't know, really. Since the idea is not new, here is a quite critical opinion piece from 2015 I found, waiting for the next wave:

A Utah man who dug up graves at Yellowstone while searching for Forrest Fenn's $1 million treasure is facing up to 12 years in prison

Oh interesting, my brother-in-law lives in the same town as him.

Will see if I can get any gossip.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. I get a little uncomfortable with fully restoring things, especially something like the Colosseum, which has been renowned as a ruin, for much longer than it was ever an active amphitheatre.

But in counter balance, I mostly disagree with everything the writer of the article publishes, so am in a quandary that I may agree with him :)

The Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea recently produced and posted a 6 episode online-short K-Drama that features all nine inscribed Seowon. All videos have English subtitles and maybe its worth including on the Seowon, Neo-Confucian Academies page. This was in part created because of the pandemic and the dip in tourism. The title is "300 Year-Old Class of 2020" and the genre is fantasy-comic, so expect a somewhat silly storyline. Besides English, subtitles are offered in Chinese, Japanese, Greek, and Vietnamese.
