Pompeii theft 'injures Italy' - Osanna

Site's director general feels 'hit personally'

(ANSA) - Naples, May 18 - Massimo Osanna, the director general of the Pompeii archaeological site, expressed dismay on Thursday at the theft of a bronze relic from the site. "In addition to being a gesture that injures Pompeii and Italy's cultural heritage, even though it is not a priceless piece, it hits me on a personal level and it was an area where I had conducted the excavation myself," he said.
