New Director General for Antiquities

The Italian Ministry of Culture has announced some new appointments, including the new Director General for Antiquities (this translates as the top post overseeing archaeological heritage). Stefano De Caro is now retired and the new Director is Luigi Malnati, formerly superintendent for Emilia-Romagna. While there has been no other information on the subject, this position is key in the constantly evolving heritage system - which has clear impacts on the management of Pompeii and the other Vesuvian sites.
