Laus Pompeia[edit]

That is currently a redirect to Lodi, Italy and we cover it briefly in the article. However, I have just come across a couple of pages on www.santiebeati.it which gloss it as the nearby Lodi Vecchio. it:Laus Pompeia concurs. Probably those two sites are correct and we should move in line with them. But it would be good to get decent sources—which I don’t have to hand—when doing so.

Hi, I'm an italian user from Lodi, and I can confirm that the ancient Roman town Laus Pompeia is nowadays the city of Lodi Vecchio. It was destroyed in XII century and re-founded in another place (5 km far), by Barbarossa. But they really are two different cities.--Zuffe (talk) 14:25, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I confirm the above. I live near Lodi, too. Lodivecchio is smaller than Lodi and has a beautiful basilica. There really should be two different pages. --Ithunn (talk) 06:27, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
