Reopen the “House of Cryptoporticus ,” in Pompeii .

After a year of renovations , the construction site , Friday ends Planimetria-domus-criptoportico-pompeithe work . The yard , the house , which for now is only open to professionals , once vacated will be presented in full regalia . It is possible that on this occasion they can get government officials . The conclusion of the recovery of the domus ” of the Cryptoporticus ,” also has another meaning: it is the first site of the “Great Pompeii project ” to be completed , so it is a promotion, at no cost, the ability to know how to be strict Italian and serious , to be played on the international stage , for the future.

In short, the ‘ house of the Cryptoporticus , ” domus whose entrance faces Abundance Way , the main street of the old city , which by the end of this week will be recovered perfectly handed back to the Department and archeology all , it is certainly something which lead to pride , after years of “terrible” experiences from Pompeii.

The cost of the intervention was 304mila euro , penny more , penny less . Including , of course, charges for security, equal to about 8 thousand euro . The contract , awarded to the company , ” Perillo buildings “, was awarded with a decline of about 57% . This also means that , under the circumstances , with the € 105 million allocated by the EU to secure Pompeii , one could point to the salvation of a number of more or less double the archaeological buildings .


The House of the Cryptoporticus

The House of the Cryptoporticus is situated in Insula 6, Regio I; its main entrance is at n° 2, Via dell’Abbondanza. It was Crtipto_anfore_130405103041brought to light in various stages, between 1911 and 1914 during the excavation works supervised by Vittorio Spinazzola, and between 1927 and 1930 under the supervision of Amedeo Maiuri.

The house was originally built in the 3rd century BC and by the 2nd century BC it had been extended to include the House of the Sacello Iliaco. After the earthquake that took place in 62, the two atrium-and-peristyle houses were divided and became independent homes once again.

The house takes its current name from the cryptoporticus, an underground passageway with openings, running along three sides of the quadrangular south-opening garden. A living room (the oecus) and four thermal bathing rooms (apodyterium, frigidarium, tepidarium and calidarium, the latter being preceded by a praefurnium) open onto it. The cryptoporticus originally had  barrel and cross vaulted ceilings and the walls of the oecus were decorated with a series of scenes inspired by the Iliad, providing one of the finest examples of Pompeian painting from the final stage of the Second style (era of Augustus). The walls of the four bathing rooms were also painted with exquisite scenic images. The building suffered severe damage from the September 1943bombardment of Pompeii.

Archaeological sites Pompeii

Archaeological sites Pompeii, useful info and tips for visiting

Archaeological sites pompeii is the ruined ancient Roman city , which was engulfed by Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79.

Archaeological sites Pompeii..with its excavated area, extending for approximately 44 ha, and the preservation state of its buildings, due to the particular burial (under a blanket of 6 meter of ash and rock) caused by the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD, Pompeii can be considered the only archaelogical site which gives the real image of roman city. And the image is similar to cities, not preserved, of the same period.

The city of Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of thecomune of Pompei. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Archaeological sites Pompeii

The excavated city offers a snapshot of Roman life in the 1st century, frozen at the moment it was buried on 24 August AD 79.The forum, the baths, many houses, and some out-of-town villas like the Villa of the Mysteries remain well preserved.

Archaeological sites Pompeii

  • The amphitheatre. This is in the most easterly corner of the excavated area, near the Sarno Gate entrance. It was completed in 80BC, measures 135 x 104 metres and could hold about 20,000 people. It is the earliest surviving permanent amphitheatre in Italy and one of the best preserved anywhere. It was used for gladiator battles, other sports and spectacles involving wild animals.
  • The Great Palaestra (Gymnasium). This occupies a large area opposite the Amphitheatre. The central area was used for sporting activities and there was a pool in the middle. On three sides are lengthy internal porticos or colonnades.
  • House of the Vettii. This is believed to have been the home of two brothers who were freed slaves and became very affluent. It contains many frescoes. In the vestibule there is a striking fresco of a well-endowed Priapus, God of Fertility and among the frescos in other parts of the building are illustrations of couples making love, of cupids and of mythological characters.
  • House of the Faun. This is named after a statue of a dancing faun found on the site. It is considered to be an excellent example of the fusion of Italian and Greek architectural styles, and occupies an entire block.

  • Forum. This was the center of public life, although it is now to the southwest of the excavated area. It was surrounded by many of the important governmment, religious and business buildings.
  • Temple of Apollo. This is to the north of the Basilica on the western side of the Forum. It has the oldest remains discovered, with some, including Etruscan items, dating back to 575BC, although the layout we see now was later than that.
  • Theatre. Theatre built in the hollow of a hill for acoustic advantage; it seated 5,000
  • Via dei Sepolcri (street of tombs) A long street with worn ruts from carts.
  • Lupanar An ancient brothel with pornographic frescoes over the entrance to each room, presumably indicating the services on offer. Even allowing for the smaller size of ancient Romans the beds seem rather small.
  • House of the Ancient Hunt. Attractive, open-style house with many frescoes of hunting scenes.
  • The Basilica This is to the west of the Forum. It was the most important public building of the city where both justice was administered and trade was carried on.
  • Forum Granary Artifacts like amphorae (storage jars) and plaster casts of people who did not escape the eruption are stored in this building, which was designed to be the public market but may not have been finished before the eruption.
  • Baths. There are several baths to be inspected. The Forum Baths are just north of the forum and close to the restaurant. They are well-preserved and roofed. Be careful not to miss them as the entranceway is a long passage with no indication of the delights inside. The Central Baths occupy a much larger area but are less well-preserved. Close to these are the Stabian baths which have some interesting decorations and give a good idea of how baths used to function in Roman times.
  • House of the Tragic Poet. This small atrium house is best known for the mosaic at the entrance depicting a chained dog, with the words Cave Canem or “Beware of the Dog”.

  • The Ground surface You will see in the ground there are small tiles called cat’s eyes. The moon’s light or candle light reflects off these tiles and gave light, so people could see where they were walking at night.
  • Bars and Bakeries You will walk past where their bars and bakeries once existed. The bars had counters with three to four holes in them. They have water or other beverages available in the holes. The bakeries’ ovens look similar to the old brick stone oven. The House of the Baker has a garden area with millstones of lava used for grinding the wheat.
  • Street There are tracks for the carriages in the street for a smoother ride. There are also stone blocks in the street for pedestrians to step onto to cross the street. The sidewalks are higher than the modern sidewalk because the streets had water and waste flowing through them. The stone blocks in the street were also as high as the sidewalk, so people did not walk in the waste and water. The stone blocks were also used for what we now call speed bumps. When the carriages were going through the city, they were going fast. To avoid people from getting splashed by the water and waste they had stone blocks in the street. This would make the driver slow down when they were speeding, so they could get through the blocks.

Archaelogical sites Pompeii .. Outside of the city walls:

  • Villa dei Misteri (Villa of the Mysteries) A house with curious frescoes, perhaps of women being initiated into the Cult of Dionysus. Contains one of the finest fresco cycles in Italy, as well as humorous ancient graffiti.

Pompei duomo

Pompeii Sanctuary

In Piazza Bartolo Longo stands the famous sanctuary of the  Beata Vergine del Rosario.

Once, this large area called Campo Pompeiano, was a feud belonging first to Luigi Caracciolo and then to Ferdinando d’Aragona until in 1593 it became the private property of Alfonso Piccolomini.

From this moment an inexorable decline started and ended only towards the end of the nineteenth century with the arrival of a young lawyer from Puglia, Bartolo Longo with the task to administrate the goods of the countess De Fusco.

Bartolo Longo decided to commit himself to the divulgation of Christianity and thus founded the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary in the church of SS. Salvatore, here he started the collection to build the Sanctuary dedicated to the Madonna.

Indirizzo: Piazza Bartolo Longo, 1
80045 Pompei Napoli
Telefono: 081 857 7111

The Sanctuary, which was designed by the architect Antonio Cua who directed the work without recompense, was consecrated on May 7th 1891. In 1901 Giovanni Rispoli took over from Cua and he superintended the works of the monumental façade which has its maximum artistic expression with the statue of the Vergine del Rosario sculptured by Gaetano Chiaromonte in a block of marble from Carrara.

In 1901 the sanctuary became a papal Basilica by order of pope Leon XIII.
Aristide and Pio Leonori designed the bell-tower which has its entrance from a bronze door and has five floors. The Basilica has got a nave and two side aisles. In the nave there is a cupola 57 metres high.
The painting of the “Vergine del Rosario con il Bambino” with its bronze gilt frame is exposed on the high altar. Today the painting is object of  deep veneration and the story of its acquisition is really strange.
The painting was bought from a second-hand dealer by Father Alberto Maria Radente belonging to the convent of “S. Domenico Maggiore” who gave it as a gift to Bartolo Longo.

Then the painting was brought to Pompeii by a carter on a barrow full of manure.
At this point a young girl went to the sanctuary where she prayed to the Madonna to be cured from epilepsy; and this grace was conceded, from this moment the church became a place of pilgrimage. Not far from the sanctuary there is Bartolo Longo’s house.
The upper floor is now a museum with prints, pictures and photos representing the Vesuvius eruptions as well as minerals and volcanic rocks. There is also a library with about 1300 volumes.

Our Lady of the RosaryPompeii Sanctuary

The painting of “Our Lady of the Rosary” with its bronze gilt frame is presented to the pilgrims on the high altar. The venerated painting depicts the Virgin Mary and Child Jesus presenting rosaries to Saint Dominic and SaintCatherine of Siena. Originally bought by Dominican priest Alberto Radente for eight carlini in Naples, it was offered to Bartolo Longo on the 13 November 1875 for the church he was building in Pompeii.

The original building built between 1876 and 1891 and designed by Antonio Cua followed a Latin cross plan. It was only 420 square metres (4,500 sq ft).[4] The construction of the façade, work of Giovanni Rispoli, started on the 15 May 1893. The facade culminates with the statue of the Virgin of the Rosary (18,000 kg , 3.25 m ), work of Gaetano Chiaromonte, carved from a single block of Carrara marble, beneath which are placed the word “PAX” and the year “MCMI” (1901).

To accommodate the increasing numbers of pilgrims, the sanctuary was expanded between 1934 and 1939 from one to three aisles, keeping its Latin cross plan. The project was designed by the architect-priest Monsignor Spirito Maria Chiapetta. Each new aisle has three three altars on each side The new building with its 2,000 square metres (22,000 sq ft) can accommodate up to 6,000 people.

The 80-metre (260 ft) bell tower built between 1912 and 1925 was designed by Aristide Leonori, assisted by his brother Pio Leonori.
