Works from the Archeological Museum of Naples and Pompey, the exhibition revises the history of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, when the Roman cities of Pompey and Herculano were covered along with a range of very important elements of Roman civilization.

A series of engravings and paintings historically place the tragedy and excavation of the cities that was carried out in the XVIII century.
