Boscoreale silver

Another article: Renato Profili and co have approached the Italian ambassador to UNESCO about producing copies of the Boscoreale silver, found in the Pisanella Villa in 1897, and putting them on display in the Antiquarium of Boscoreale.

I can't honestly say that I would approve (although it's unlikely anything will come of the idea) ... Few enough tourists get out to the Antiquarium as it is. I would rather the money be spent on improving facilities at Pompeii. More loos, for example! Or more custodians and more open houses. A functioning restaurant would be nice too.
