"Niente di tutto questo": skeletons at the Villa Certosa

Readers of the Italian press will be aware of the taped claim by Silvio Berlusconi that 30 Phoenician tombs were discovered on the site of the swimming pool at the Villa Certosa on Sardinia.

A report in the Corriere della Sera ("Daily Telegraph contro il premier", July 26, 2009) quotes Niccolò Ghedini, Berlusconi's lawyer. Apparently the finds of pottery and bones were probably Roman ("Nel 2005 sono stati trovati solo resti di ossa antiche, probabilmente di epoca romana, assieme a pezzi di ceramica".)
