Pompeii superintendent retires - no new superintendent yet selected

The Archaeological Superintendent for Naples and Pompeii, Mariarosaria Salvatore retired at the beginning of the week. No new superintendent has been nominated, and it may be necessary for the Ministry of Culture to organise a public competition to choose one. In the meantime it is being suggested that Giuseppe Proietti (current Superintendent of Rome) will temporarily fill the gap until the end of the month.

More news/speculation in this Italian-language article published in Il Mattino: "Il sovrintendente «Lascio realtà molto difficili». Per la successione a Mariarosaria Salvatore si fa il nome di Proietti"

Does anyone know, in the meantime, who we are to address in letters of permission? Are we at a "To whom it may concern" stage?

To Dr. Varrone, I believe.

Also, another article published today in Il Mattino claims that Pompeii may be set to become a 'foundation' run by local businesses and interested parties ... Check out for the article.
