In 2015, curators from Pompeii received “hundreds of packages” with notes of apologies from tourists who return stolen artifacts.

In October, information circulated around the world about a Canadian woman who returned to Pompeii curators an old fragment of the object, more than 2,000 years old, stolen 50 years earlier. A woman who is now 70 years old took the roof of the decoration from the 1st century CE, made of terracotta. As her offence claims, she had a bad conscience for decades.

Massimo Osanna, the overseer of Pompeii, reveals that there were hundreds of such cases.
