The team says they aim to “put back on the map the island of Rhodes beginning with the restoration of its historical value.”

The enormous structure, which would dwarf the Statue of Liberty, would mainly serve as a library and museum “to bring out to light the hundreds of archaeological findings forgotten in the storerooms of the island.”

A new push to rebuild the Colossus has been gaining momentum for several years, with the Mayor of Rhodes — Fotis Hatzidiacos — stating last last year that negotiations were underway to identify a site for the new structure.

A previous attempt, in 2000, failed to garner enough financial support.
