The Dig at Piazza Armerina

Villa Romana del Casale near Piazza Armerina, Sicily ~ April 28, 2004

A clear-ceilinged structure covers the most incredible mosaics, still in situ at the Villa Romana del Casale near the present-day hilltop town of Pizza Armerina.

That's really well covered. Great that the mosaics have a safe and dry home.

I would very much like to visit this. I was reading some time ago about all the digs in Rome and the wonders they are constantly discovering buried under the city.

Nice to hear from you; hope all is well!

It looks like both of us are keeping on keeping on (re the blogs!)...
