Pompeii conservation project (finally) begins

A new preservation campaign has finally begun after years of mismanagement and underfunding. Arrests have been made of the former director and former contractor, and the EU promises that project funds will not be siphoned off by the local mafia. Good luck!

Don't miss the sentence near the end about an incident at the Uffizi that happened yesterday.
