The ancient city Pompeii near Naples, Italy, receives hundreds thousands of tourists every year. It is one Italy's top tourist destinations. Most tourists leave the 2,000-year-old site happy memories, photos and souvenirs. However, some visitors take more. They take historic relics the city – things like small statues, stones or mosaic tiles. However, many these people are now regretting their actions. They say the relics are cursed and have filled their lives bad luck since bringing them home. A senior official Pompeii said he has had hundreds of packages across the world people returning what they had taken. Many people apologised and wrote stories about their bad luck.

The senior official, Massimo Osanna, told reporters about some the stories he had received. One man Latin America explained that his life was full traumas after he got home from Italy a small tile he had put his pocket. A person Spain returned five packages containing stolen items, including a bronze statue that went missing 1987. The writer complained that the statue had put, "a curse his entire family". Mr Osanna is thinking about setting an exhibition all the letters he has received. He explained that the letters might be more interesting than the relics. He said: "It's not that the stolen pieces are highly interesting or valuable. It's more the letters."
