The European Union has allocated a total of 105 million euros for the Pompeii restoration and since then UNESCO has repeatedly expressed its concern about the current conditions of the World Heritage site, reaching threaten to remove you from that list if no improvements were made.

Now, in the last report of the inspectors, they reported on «tangible and significant improvements in the state of conservation of Pompeii"Adding that" Italy is making a considerable effort to adopt the recommendations of the World Heritage Committee ", so they have decided to extend the Greater Pompeii Project until the end of 2016.

In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
