      Pompeii gets cash boost from Italian government
      BBC, 5 April 2012

      The Italian government has launched a 105m euros (£87m) project to
      save one of the world's greatest archaeological treasures, the ancient
      city of Pompeii. There has been growing concern that the site, where
      volcanic ash smothered a Roman city in AD79, has been neglected. A
      number of structures have fully or partially collapsed, including the
      "House of Gladiators" which fell down 18 months ago. Italy and the EU
      have now put up the funds for a major restoration plan.
