Restoration projects in Pompeii

Being late for a few days, here is the list of the houses that should be restored from May on (or so):
- Casa del Marinaio (VII 5, 15)
- Casa dei Dioscuri (VI 9, 6)- Casa delle pareti rosse (VIII 5, 37)
- Casa del Criptoportico (I 6, 2)
- Casa di Sirico (VII 1, 25)

Once the call for bids over (April 24th), there will be a public opening of those (May 4th). Then, after the decision, these houses might be strictly closed to any visit for 550 days.
