Naples, September 12 - A spot check by anti-mafia
investigators for infiltration by organized crime gangs of
restoration works at the Pompeii archaeological site came up
clean, authorities said Thursday.
The investigators inspected construction companies as well
as 20 individuals involved in the Great Pompeii Project, which
has drawn 105 million euros in support from the European Union.
That kind of money makes the project a potential magnet for
organized crime.
The Great Pompeii Project has become something of a symbol
for Italian authorities, who want to demonstrate the country can
preserve and protect a world famous archaeological site - both
from physical decay as well as corruption by the local mafia,
the Camorra.
Collapses in parts of 2,000-year-old Pompeii, a UNESCO
World Heritage site, in recent years has raised international
concern about Italy's ability to protect the site.
