AREZZO, ITALY—Andrea Pessina, regional superintendent of archaeological heritage, announced that a first-century Roman structure has been discovered at the Medici Fortress of Arezzo in central Italy. According to a report in ANSAmed, the building, which sits on a steep slope overlooking a valley, was probably used as a residence. Painted walls and floors have been found in two of the three uncovered rooms. Archaeologists also excavated the medieval burial of a man with a long iron sword.
