TV interview with Carandini on Pompeii

Yesterday evening's episode of "Parla con me" included an interview with archaeologist Andrea Carandini on the subject of Pompeii (start watching at 8 minutes in). While obviously talking about the recent collapse of the House of the Gladiators, he also gives his opinions on a wide range of subjects related to the site's management. He was invited in his role of Presidente del Consiglio Superiore dei Beni Culturali i.e. President of the Council for Cultural Heritage which advises the government on heritage matters.

Viewers should note that some of his facts are not necessarily 100% accurate... (e.g. visitor numbers seem wildly exaggerated and we can be sure that Packard is definately not English!)
