Pompeii museum reopens after 36 years

Pompeii museum reopens after 36 years, its new exhibition includes a vivid audio-visual recreation of the moment the ancient city was destroyed in 79 AD.

Pompeii museum reopens has reopened after 36 years.

Its new exhibition includes a vivid audio-visual recreation of the moment the ancient city was destroyed in 79 AD, when Mount Vesuvius erupted burying Pompeii and its inhabitants under a thick carpet of volcanic ash.

Temporarily closed following world war two bombings, the museum didn’t survive the 1980 Naples earthquake.

When a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748, they were surprised to find that underneath a thick layer of dust and debris Pompeii was mostly intact. The buildings, artifacts and skeletons left behind provided invaluable information about everyday life in the ancient city.

“We decided to exhibit one of the molds that was already on show here at the Antiquarium before the world war two bombings. It is a mold of one of the victims of the volcanic eruption. Around 100 molds were made after 1863 when the great archaeologist Giuseppe Fiorelli created this technique, where you pour liquid plaster into the hardened ash that formed around the victim’s body after the body decomposed,” says one of the museum’s restorers, Sara Matilde Masseroli.

Featuring a permanent exhibition called ‘Per Grazia Ricevuta’, dedicated to the places of worship in pre-Roman Pompeii, the exhibition continues in the Villa Imperiale, a luxurious building dating back to the first century AD never open to the public before.

The Domus of Triptolemus

 

Pompeii Ruins on Facebook , click I Like and Share the page!

The House of Triptolemus (VII 7, 5) is located in front of the Basilica and adjacent to the Sanctuary of Apollo. Since the second century BC it was a lavish domus provided with two atriums and two peristyles, which had both a board andprivate areas. The house is inserted in a block which was occupied since the third century BC, and after 80 BC changed into a single property by attaching the nearby house ofRomulus and Remus. The structural modifications and the renovation of the decorative furnishings document the wealth and importance of its owner’s role, who was probably one of the notables of the Sullan colony.the-domus-of-triptolemus
Entering the vestibule located at Via Marina n. 5, one accesses the Tuscan atrium of the house (b),which is paved with marble chips and has a central impluvium. Through two steps, one accesses the peristyle (l) – which has twelve columns and a rectangular basin which is located inthe central area used as a garden.
The peristyle columns are covered with red and white plaster, and were originally connected to each other through wooden bulkheads.

From the portico of the peristyle, which is paved with a white mosaic dotted with black pieces, one accesses the boardrooms (m, n and u). The wide hall (m) is decorated with Fourth Style frescos. It shows a series of small paintings depicting erotes, which are located on the top of thesocle decorated as fake marble. Among them there are the paintings depicting Venus and Adonis, and Hermaphrodite in the mirror, which are known only through drawings of the late 1800s.

domus-of-triptolemus
The famous fresco depicting Triptolemus was part of the triclinium’s decoration
(n), which gives the name to the house. The hero, chosen by Demeter to teach the agricultural arts to humankind, is depicted as receiving a basket of ears of wheat. Another painting celebrated Venus coming from the sea on the back of a triton, and her arrival at the hill where she would found Pompeii, the city of Venus (Veneris sedes: Martial. IV, 44).

The exedra (u), which is completely open on the peristyle and on axis with the entrance, was the most important room of the house. It is accessed through a threshold of lava blocks, which is followed by a polychrome mosaic pavement decorated with the motif of the city wall. The center of the room is decorated by a big square decorated by limestone tiles with a perspective cubes motif, which is similar to the one found in the cella of the nearby temples of Apollo and Jupiter. The recovery of this motif in a domestic context is a rarity, which was used by the owner to increase the importance of the house. From the peristyle of the house of Triptolemus one accessed the adjacent house which was used as pars privata. It is provided with a second colonnaded peristyle (x), another atrium with tufa impluvium (g) which is set off-center from the vestibule, on which wider and smaller (cubicula) are open, and service rooms.

On the southern side of the peristyle there is a marble block, which is part of an architrave. It carries the name M(arcus) Artorius M(arci) l(ibertus)Prim[us], who was an Augustan Age architect, responsible for the restoration of the Great Theater of Pompeii (CIL X, 807; 841). Despite the fact it was found in the house, the block belonged to a public building, probably the nearby Basilica.
In the triclinium (n) two large pieces of the vault decorated with mosaic from the Suburban Baths are exhibited, which were discovered during the 1959 excavation. They were part of a barrel vault of a hall (m 11,40 x 7,60), which is almost completely occupied by a swimming poolwarmed up through a ‘samovar’ system (and this is the only case known in Pompeii so far). The rare mosaic, which is stylistically close to Fourth Style paintings, was made after the AD 62 earthquake. In the first section of the mosaic (which is located on the left of the series) there are colorful frames which are worth noting; one of these frames is decorated with shells and fishes, among which there is a darting dolphin. In the second section, under a circle decorated with a shell motif, there are meander motifs, garlands held by a winged figure, an eagle on a globe inserted in a tripod, and a landscape painting.

The Domus of Romulus and Remus

 

Pompeii Ruins on Facebook , click I Like and Share the page!

The domus of Romulus and Remus was erected in the second century BC, in the same period when a unique sort of sidewalk, decorated with a pebbles mosaic, was realized in front of the house. Located in a prestigious district of the city, in proximity of a city gate and the main public buildings, the house has a traditional plan: the entrance (a) leads to the atrium with impluvium (b), surrounded by private rooms.

Romolo3_140418013025
The representative rooms comprise a tablinum (k) and an oecus (n) as well as a small garden (q), surrounded by a portico with fluted columns, paved in cocciopesto (p). The room (t), an alcove, bears traces of the presence of a bed, namely grooves visible on the east and west wall.
The name of the house derives from a fresco which was lost during the bombing of 1943. In the night of August 24 (in tragic coincidence with the supposed date of the eruption in 79 AD) and September 13, two bombs fired by Allied forces hit the domus. The fresco was located in room (n) and represented the legendary she-wolf while suckling the twins Romulus and Remus, founders of Rome (established, according to the legend, on April 21 753 BC).
Inside the house, which was excavated primarily in the years 1871-72, the bodies of five persons were discovered, one of whom died when attempting to escape. His right hand was clapsing numerous gold, silver and bronze coins, while the left hand was clapsing a gold and a bronze ring. Since we know of another lost wall painting depicting Romulus, and since one of the rings bears the initials FA.H, M.
Della Corte hypothesized that in 79 AD the house was inhabited by members of the illustrious gens Fabia (hence the initials FA), known for contributing to the college of priests who organized the celebrations commemorating the foundation of Rome during the feast of Lupercalia .
Scudo_140418013737The marble steps at the entrance as well as the discovery of finely crafted objects (including a bronze stool, silver objects, a safe of which the basis of lava stone remains, placed in room (g) reflect the high living standard of the family.
The great Fourth Pompeian Style frescos in the peristyle (p) show, on the west wall, statues of nymphs, a fountain and a peacock. Originally, there was also a sleeping satyr. A group of animals is depicted on the north wall: an elephant and a buffalo; a snake and a winged griffin (top), a cow, a gazelle, a donkey, a running fox, a bear and paws of big cats. The scene, placed on a red background with flowering bushes and birds, recalls the theme of the paràdeisos, a garden full of exotic animals. In the central part, which is lost, Orpheus was probably entrancing the animals with the sound of his lyre.

The Domus of Marcus Lucretius Fronto

 

Pompeii Ruins on Facebook , click I Like and Share the page!

Behind a simple façade, along the street perpendicular to Via di Nola, there is one of the finest atrium houses in Pompeii.  While its original structure dates back to the second century BC, by the age of Augustus (end of the century.BC – beginning of the first century AD) it was inhabited by one of the c i t y ’ sleading families. Electoral inscriptions found on the façade during the excavations suggest that the owner’s name was Marcus Lucretius Fronto, a cultured man, who set out for a brilliant political career.

Though modest in size (about 460 m²), the house brims over with paintings befitting the elite status of its owner; albeit its simple furniture, it provided rich intellectuals stimuli through the paintings, which belong to the late Third Style. The central area of the house consists of the atrium and tablinum 2, 7, decorated with paintings in the late Third Style showing mythological scenes. The principal frescoes in the tablinum 7 are set next to small paintings with a black background, held by candelabra, depicting sumptuous imaginary villas overlooking the sea.

Animali_domus_marco_lucretius_fronto_pompeii

 

In the middle of the left wall, a dark-skinned Mars is bending over Venus, clearly with amorous intentions, in the presence of Cupido; on the opposite wall Bacchus and Ariadne are represented on a chariot. In the cubiculum 6, painted in deep yellow, two moralizing scenes are represented: on the left wall a cupid with cornucopia is placed next to Narcissus admiring his reflection in the water.Puttino_140417094353
On the other wall, Pero is nursing her old, imprisoned father Cimon, saving him from death by starvation. Two medallions with portraits of children placed next to the door suggest that the room might have belonged to the owner’s sons.

The decoration in the Fourth Style was probably part of the restoration work done in the room after 62 AD. In the triclinium 4, which is currently being restored, there is a picture with the murder of Neoptolemus by Orestes against a backdrop showing an imaginary  Delphic temple, while Hermione appears in despair at the foot of an altar.

The rear of the house is occupied to the left by a kitchen area, a viridarium and a portico with several small rooms opening towards it. On the left wall of the triclinium 12 Dionysus and a Silenus are depicted. In the neighbouring room 14, the skeletons of five adults and three children were discovered. They were crushed by the collapse of the roof during the eruption that destroyed the city in 79 AD. On the north wall of the garden area one can still recognize a hunting fresco with wild animals (lions, panthers, and bears) as well as domestic animals (bulls, oxen, horses).

The southern part of the wall painting was damaged when ancient diggers made a hole in order to enter the house (so called “cunicolari”). At the time of the eruption, restoration work was being done in the garden as an amphora full of lime, found under the stairs, demonstrates..

Inside the basilica, in fact, the 60 elements of the band will play the classical pieces that will project in the magical Christmas atmosphere. The band of the “Bartolo Longo” Pontifical Institute, directed by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, was commissioned and created by Blessed Bartolo Longo in 1894. The knowledge and practice of music, in fact, formed part of the primary means of its educational style. On Christmas Eve, at the stroke of midnight, as always, we will celebrate the birth of Jesus through the celebration of Mass in the Sanctuary.
