More information is emerging today about the collapse of a crane into the excavations around the House of the Chaste Lovers. According to the Corriere del Mezzogiorno, the crane was badly positioned and was undermined by heavy rain. Apparently, it was being used in works in the House of the Chaste Lovers ordered by the commissario, Marcello Fiori, in hasty preparation for an imminent visit by Berlusconi. It has also been suggested that this terrible event occurred on the 15th January - not the 18th as previously recorded - and had been hushed up.
