Anti-mafia checks carried out at work sites in Pompeii
Police inspections geared to stop criminal infiltration12 September, 16:07
Two contractors and 20 people working on the revamping of three domus, or ancient Roman homes for the wealthy that are a highlight for visitors to the archeological site, were checked.
Contracts for the domus' restorations are being partially paid for with the 105 million euros in funding earmarked in March by the European Union as part of the Great Pompeii Project.
The EU funding will be combined with matching money from Italy and a parallel project of private investors and businesses to develop areas surrounding the archeological site is also planned.
