    (ANSAmed) - NAPLES, OCTOBER 1 - Security procedures will be tightened at the Pompeii archaeological park starting Wednesday, with the activation of a new entry checkpoint at Piazza Anfiteatro.

    An initial check will take place at the entry gates to detect any potentially dangerous materials.

    Visitors will then follow a roped-off path towards a second checkpoint where they and their bags will be scanned with security machines in the presence of specialised armed guards.

    The park's coat check service will also be expanded to facilitate the mandatory checking of larger bags.

    Self-service ticket machines will be available at the entrance to speed up visitor entry.

    These new prevention and control systems will work with those already in use, along with surveillance and video surveillance of the excavation site, to help the Pompeii archaeological park become an increasingly secure and protected archaeological area.

    Following an experimental stage, the new devices will also be installed at the entrances at Porta Marina and Piazza Esedra.(ANSAmed).
