Ten domus to reopen in Pompeii archeological site

(see previous) Naples, July 23 - Ten domus, or ancient Roman homes for the wealthy, in the Pompeii archeological site will be reopened in the coming weeks, Italian Culture Minister Massimo Bray said on Tuesday. "This is thanks to additional personnel," Bray said. Bray and Territorial Cohesion Minister Carlo Trigilia visited the UNESCO World Heritage site to survey work underway and check that contracts for restoration are being fulfilled. Pompeii and nearby Herculaneum are some of Italy's most popular tourist destinations in Italy. In March, the EU Commission approved an injection of 105 million euros in restoration funds for Pompeii's ailing monuments, to be combined with matching money from Italy. A parallel project of private investors and businesses to develop areas surrounding the archeological site is also planned.
