'Little Pompeii' emerges at Verona ex-cinema

Building abandoned after fire, 'magnificent' frescoes

(ANSA) - VERONA, JUN 14 - A 2nd-century AD Roman building has emerged from a dig at a former cinema in Verona in a find that "evokes a miniature Pompeii", the Veneto city's archaeological superintendency said Monday.
