As one who has a deep respect for archaeology, I'm appalled that anyone would consider doing such a thing. This site should be preserved for what it is: a window into the past which can possibly teach us more about how the ancient Romans lived. Do you usually incorporate archaelogical sites into new construction in Greece? Don't get me wrong; I'm all for adaptive reuse, but I'm not at all for turning the ruins of Pompeii into condos or the pyramid of Cheops into a restaurant.
