On Facebook, authorities of Negrar di Valpolicella posted photos of the unearthed site. They wrote (rough translation), “After countless decades of failed attempts, part of the floor and foundations of the Roman villa located north of Verona, discovered by scholars a century ago, has finally been brought to light.”

Authorities of Negrar di Valpolicella also said that the municipality will provide necessary collaboration on the archaeological site. They are also working on making the site more accessible to the public.
