ROME—Restoration work to remove dirt and calcified rock from the walls of the only intact internal passageway within the Colosseum has revealed frescoes painted in blue, red, and green, as well as lewd graffiti. The passageway, which is located in an area between the second and third floors, will be opened to the public next summer.
