About this project
Pompeii is one of the world’s most important archaeological sites. Under Grande Progetto Pompei, €105 million has been invested in its preservation and restoration, of which €78 million is from EU funds. This should boost the economy by promoting tourism and related local industries. Phase 1 was completed in December 2015 and the rest of the work is expected to be finished by the end of 2018.
