New Collapse

News just in about another collapse today following a landslide at the Villa of Diomede on the Via Consolare. The news has just been posted on the Il Mattino Facebook page.
My rough translation suggests that modern walls in the vacinity were damaged days before this collapse. There has been no official announcement from the site yet.
Attached is the photo that came with Il Mattino's news announcement.
If anyone can check out the story and translate it better than my very rough translation of the Italian source which may have errors please do.

Looks like a bit of a dispute between UIL, which reported the damage, and the superintendency. There have indeed been collapses of modern walls in the area, according to the article.

The sup. says that there is no damage to the villa, but a wall attached to a fountain had collapsed, but that damage is not recent, based on vegetation growing on the remains.
