Experts To Probe Ghost Reports At Museum


NAPLES, Italy, Aug. 24 (UPI) — Officials at the Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy said experts are being brought in to investigate reported paranormal happenings at the facility.

The museum said the experts, identified only as university professors, will arrive in September to investigate claims of supernatural activity, ANSA reported Tuesday.

However, museum director Valeria Sampaolo called reports of ghosts at the museum “devoid of truth” and “pure fantasy.”

“We expect our visitors in flesh and blood,” Sampaolo said.

The reports include an image appearing to resemble a young girl in a photograph taken by Oreste Albarano, the government architect overseeing museum repairs. Workers in the building have also reported tools and equipment being moved or going missing.
