Huh. I wonder why Reuters took so long to carry this story. I saw it in the NYTimes almost two weeks ago. (Their story is now expired for web viewing.)

On preview, it was on MeFi before too.

I didn't see hear about this before (or see it on here before), so despite its doubelpost status, thanks for the link!

Same here, I must've missed it. Very cool. I would LOVE to walk through that room!

Hopefully someone will hide this thread behind a staircase before someone drags it to MetaTalk!

I second the " I want pics" of wsg

I would sacrifice something precious to walk those rooms as well, but tours will be highly unlikely. I can't see the Italian gov't letting the unwashed masses tromp through the place with their flashing cameras and CO2 emissions.

I will also echo wsg, where are the pics?

although a quick Google did bring up this little gem about restoring old frescoes.

The secret staircase.
Picture of the frescos.
Fresco detail.
