Pompeii Villa Vandalized Possibly By the Camorra

Possibly? If this wasn't a 'horse head in their bed' I don't know what is .

This link will only last ~1 week.

 This article is from 6yrs ago and mentions the Camorra basically trying to get control of the site thru vendors, employees, *restoration money*, etc.
 
 Also there have been quite a few thefts from the site since that article.

That is outrageous Walter. I don't suppose there's anything I can do except wring my hands....

Walter,

You always bring us the news, whether it's good or bad. I knew this was from you as soon as I saw the title. This is such a tragedy, so sad.

Grazie, Walter
