September 5, 2018

Hat: Pompeii (UNESCO site) and European funds

Funding Scheme: 2018-09-05

Pgm2014 2020: Yes


The EU project aims at slowing down and reversing the deterioration of the site, enlarging thus the surface to 23, 000 m2. It should attract an average of 200,000 extra visitors per year.


Thanks to the European regional development fund (ERDF), the structures and the urban profile of the site will be consolidated from the riskiest zones. The works of restoration will be realised according to innovative methods of conservation. Moreover, the Archaeological Superintendency of Naples and Caserta will be supported in the reinforcement of its skills and technical titles.
