Museum

Pompeii is one of the most important examples of Roman civilization: the city has re-emerged intact from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that had buried in 79 AD. The ruins emerged in excellent condition, thanks to the particular eruption of ash and lapilli that has preserved them intact, allow us to visit an authentic city of the Roman Empire, from everyday items to large monuments of the intense public life.

History

Pompeii, buried in 79 AD, was rediscovered only in 1748 during the reign of Charles of Bourbon, King of the Two Sicilies, to give prestige to the royal house. The excavations proceeded in a discontinuous manner, so that Pompeii was identified as such only a few years later. Until 1800 when excavations resumed intensely after the Unification of Italy in 1861 and the arrival of Giuseppe Fiorelli as director of excavations. Proceeding in a systematic way, trying to connect what had already emerged, many treasures that Pompeii was hiding were brought to light. The method of plaster casts was also introduced that allow to recover the victims of the eruption. In the last century, under the direction of Amedeo Maiuri, the whole city was cordoned off and restored. In 1997, Pompeii was declared "World Heritage" by UNESCO.
