Pompeii

Pompei is one of the most important tokens of the roman civilization: in fact, before the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD, it was an important commercial and cultural center.

Today, nearly 2000 years after its destruction, it is considered an extraordinary "catalogue" on the art, the dresses, the jobs, the daily life of the past: the excavations cover a surface of 44 hectares, where you can admire the roman buildings, very well conserved, thanks to the burial under meters of ashes.

Pompei and its excavations represent one of the favourite destinations in southern Italy; there are a lot of fascinating buildings, among which the Forum, the Temple of Apollo, the Villa del Fauno and the garden of the fugitives, a wide vineyard, where you can see the moulds of the people running away from the volcano: the director of the Archaeological Areas of Pompeii in the years 1860-1875, Giuseppe Fiorelli, introduced the moulds, that allow us to see the shapes of people and animals, killed while trying to run away, that are quite touching.
