MELBOURNE Mike Trout Jersey , Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese-built replica of ancient Rome's Coliseum could be installed as a permanent tourist attraction in Melbourne, Australia.
Melbourne's city councilors are debating a plan to drop the already-built wooden structure, which measures 18 meters wide by 35 meters long, in the bayside suburb of Docklands.

Connie Paglianiti, the event organizer who funded the mass replica out of her own pocket, believes it could become a major tourist pull for the city.
"It's all here in Melbourne - waiting to come to life," Paglianiti told Fairfax Media on Wednesday.

"It's quite clean looking, it doesn't look old."

"People were taking photos left, right and center," Paglianiti said.
