To mark its 130th an­niver­sary in 2015, Ital­ian jew­eller and watch­maker Bul­gari inked an agree­ment with the city of Rome to fund the restora­tion of one of its most iconic mon­u­ments: The Span­ish Steps. The Rome-based com­pany pledged €1.5 mil­lion to the project, which re­cently com­menced re­fur­bish­ment works. Orig­i­nally built be­tween 1723 and 1726 as a theatri­cal link be­tween the Pi­azza di Spagna and the slopes of Pin­cian Hill, the Steps also holds his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance for Bul­gari as its very first store opened in nearby Via Sistina in 1884.
