A sinkhole measuring six metres deep opened up on Via Ambrosini in the Montagnola neighbourhood of southern Rome on 24 May. There were no injuries.
This is the second such incident on the same street in Rome City in six months after a four-metre-deep chasm opened up in late November.
The sinkhole is the latest in a string of recent cases involving Rome streets caving in, regularly swallowing cars in the process.
The most serious recent case involved a street collapsing into a construction site in the city’s suburb Balduina in February, leading to the evacuation of residents.
