Actor Russell Crowe supports preserving the Gladiator Tomb. The American Institute for Roman Culture starts an online petition to encourage the superintendency to consider all options before reburial of site.
The Observer, December 9, 2012
Important sites like the gladiator tomb are falling victim to dramatic budget cuts in the heritage ministry in Italy.
La Repubblica, December 4, 2012
The superintendency needs to protect the site, already subjected to difficult environmental conditions. The freezing temperatures cause damage to the worked stone blocks of the tomb. Recognizing that funds are lacking the suiperintendency's solution is to temporarily rebury the site for immediate preservation of the remains.
