Let A be the family of all meager sets of the real line ℝ, V be the family of all Vitali sets of ℝ, V 1 be the family of all finite unions of elements of V and V 2 = {(C \ A 1) ∪ A 2: CV 1; A 1, A 2A}. We show that the families V, V 1, V 2 are invariant under translations of ℝ, and V 1, V 2 are abelian semigroups with the respect to the operation of union of sets. Moreover, VV 1V 2 and V 2 consists of zero-dimensional sets without the Baire property. Then we extend the results above to the Euclidean spaces ℝ n , n ≥ 2, and their products with the finite powers of the Sorgenfrey line.
