This seems to be a somewhat random (in the Grade Seven sense of the word) little piece from the Press Association (via Yahoo):

History-loving Italians are to recreate an ancient Roman ritual in which women dressed as Vestal Virgins light a sacred flame at a villa in Tivoli, near Rome. The event will follow rituals performed by female priests to honour Vesta, the goddess of the hearth. The women had to always keep the fire burning. Other volunteers from a cultural association will be dressed as Roman soldiers, legionaries and centurions at the Temple of Vesta in Villa Gregoriana.
