    You know you're in a city that takes fashion seriously when its roads are designed to help high-heeled women walk safely and avoid damaging their precious Italian shoes. Rome is now the unofficial high-heel friendliest city in the world after the mayor of Rome, announced plans to makeover the cobblestone-paved streets and sidewalks of Via del Corso. The prime reason given for the change is to make the streets less dangerous for women in high heels. Whilst Alemanno acknowledges cobblestone streets are a part of the city's history and character, they will be replaced with modern cobblestones that are set and sealed in a base of concrete to avoid irregular depressions and gaps. Some of the more heavily traversed streets will however be paved with asphalt. According to an Italian magazine, the work to realign the new cobbles, setting them in a bed of concrete to ensure no heel-catching lumps and bumps ensue, was to begin by the end of this year.
