Fresh Wall Collapse in Pompeii

Horrific emergency indeed!

Rome, December 3 – Pompeii on Friday saw its fourth wall collapse this week, the cultural heritage branch of the UIL trade union reported in Rome.

UIL said it had already warned of dangers to the wall before the 2,000-year-old site’s famed Gladiators’ School caved in and spurred an international outcry on November 6.

The wall that came down Friday was “some 20 metres from the school,” UIL said.

It was about three metres long, three metres high and supported part of the House of Trebius Valens.

“There is an emergency, horrifying the world, that is not being tackled,” UIL said.
