Recently when Luca Mori was checking out his home in Sorbolo, Parma with Google Maps he discovered something weird. He contacted local archaeologists and they confirmed it was once the location of a Roman villa.
"At first I thought it was a stain on the photograph," 47-year-old Mr Mori explained. "But when I zoomed in, I saw that there was something under the earth."
The satellite images threw up a dark oval shape more than 500m (1,640ft) long, as well as shaded rectangular shapes nearby.
