Leave it alone.
The map is really clear to follow, though the street names can be a bit small sometimes (especially the list of street names)
The map seems a bit flimsy at first look, but actually that becomes a benefit as the plastic means you can really bend and abuse it without it tearing or only folding along set lines (like the Venice one I have)
I would definitely get more of these if visiting a city I'll be walking around.

The map is detailed with all the major and minor sights, streets and roads, remains of the Aurelian Walls, and Metro stops. Major sights such as St. Peter's Basilica, the Colosseum, and the Pantheon are represented by oversized realistic line drawings that make them even easier to pick out. Locations of important non-touristic places such as post offices, hospitals, and police stations are also indicated on this map.
Unlike another reviewer below, my version of the map - copyright 2013 - has all of Rome on one side, and indexes, a close-up of Vatican City, general information, and schemata of the Metro system and Fiumicino Airport on the other side.
The map is printed on a plastic-type material (perhaps it is plastic-laminated paper) that is difficult to tear and has contributed to its longevity despite my extensive use. Rain does not faze this map one bit. I have annotations for my favorite sights and restaurants written right on it, although ink takes time to dry on the plastic surface.
The scale is sufficient so that streets and points of interest are clearly marked and easy to identify; however, the large scale also means the map does not extend nearly as far as I would like, extending West only as far as the Western edge of Vatican City, and the southern edge cuts off half the Baths of Caracalla. Also, the depictions of the Pantheon and Vittoriano show both buildings facing South (probably to ease recognition) when in fact they are both oriented North.
However, these are minor quibbles. This is a great map with more than enough detail for the average tourist. I highly recommend this map!
