Special Exhibition

Pompeii

12 October – 4 December 2022


Pompeii, an ancient city with rich culture buried during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius two thousand years ago. What remains of their society has been preserved under a blanket of volcanic ash—a snapshot of life in an age now lost to us. This exhibition is proud to present over 120 objects from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples (MANN), all of which come together to form a mosaic of ancient Roman life.
