New Pompeii Collapse Revives Debate Over Site | Pompeii | ITALY Magazine

New Pompeii Collapse Revives Debate Over Site | Pompeii | ITALY Magazine | Ancient History- New Horizons | Scoop.it

The discovery of a newly collapsed historic column has raised concerns just weeks after UNESCO announced plans to assist the Italian government in preserving Pompeii.

 

The United Nations cultural agency previously accused Italy of neglecting the site when the House of the Gladiators collapsed in 2010.

 

It had appeared that the situation was soon to be under control, but the latest collapse has revived concerns about the gravity of the situation.

 

On Thursday, it was discovered that a column that once supported the wooden trellises in the House of Loreius Tiburtinus had crumbled. The nobleman's house, built in the second century BC, was once the site of extensive gardens with ornate fountains, statues and frescoes.

 

Archaeologists and police are working together to determine what caused the column to collapse.

Delfos: el ombligo del mundo

Delfos: el ombligo del mundo | Ancient History- New Horizons | Scoop.it

La historia ha ocurrido en lugares que no siempre parecen reflejar los sucesos que se fraguaron sobre ellos, como si no estuvieran a la altura de su fama. Con frecuencia, el viajero que busca algo más que la vacía contemplación de un paisaje, de un templo o de un campo de batalla, parece no reconocer el lugar que tiene delante de sus ojos, defraudado quizá por la magnitud de lo que había imaginado y desorientado por la austeridad, la pequeñez o la aparente fragilidad de lo que contempla.
