In light of the issues they're having with other temples this is especially of note.
"As of September 2017, construction on the Rome Italy Temple is making good progress following some additional delays that were experienced earlier in the year. Art glass windows are being installed, and trees and shrubs are being planted. In July, the on-site construction office trailers were donated to community organizations, and office space was relocated to the patron housing facility.
For much of 2014 and 2015, construction advancements were limited, and work was focused largely on replacing subpar materials and redoing work to bring the temple to the standard contracted by the Church.
Long delays experienced in 2014 prompted an official statement from the Church in January 2015: "In recent months, progress on the Rome Italy Temple slowed due to contractor difficulties not related to this project. Those challenges have been addressed, and work will soon resume at a normal pace. No dates have been announced for completion. We are grateful that our members have extended their faith and prayers and sought heaven's help in seeing this important project through to completion."
In the months that followed, foreign contractors were flown in to oversee the building's completion. Obtaining visas for those individuals and meeting Italy's other entry requirements proved a lengthy process. Work on the other buildings at the temple site is nearing completion.
On March 25, 2017, the construction of the Rome Italy Temple reached an important milestone with the installation of the angel Moroni atop the eastern spire. The event marked the now-steady progression of construction toward completion under the new general contractor.http://ldschurchtemples.org/rome/
