Marina near Rome impounded for structural instability (ANSA) - Rome, November 19 - Italian police impounded the construction-site of a 320-million-euro tourist marina west of Rome on Monday for alleged structural deficiencies and instability of the entire site.

The new Fiumicino marina, located 4km from Rome's Fiumicino international airport, is slated for completion in 2015. The first stone of the marina was laid in February 2010, and it is designed to host 1,445 leisure craft of 10m to 60m. The shutdown was ordered by the prosecutor's office of Civitavecchia, a town located 70km north of Fiumicino.

Investigators are pursuing fraud charges against suppliers for the site.
