An interesting article on StabiaNews the other day. The massive cuts in funding to cultural sites and museums in Campania will shortly result in reduced opening hours at many of these. Basic maintenance will be also affected: at Paestum, for example, the grass will be cut back, but at Velia it won’t. It will start getting difficult to visit sites like Velia within a couple of months. Pompeii and the other Vesuvian sites are lucky in this respect. Financial independence means that they are not affected by the cut-backs.
