Pompeii, new excavations Regio V

POMPEII. NEW EXCAVATIONS IN REGIO V.
AFTER DECADES, A NEW AREA OF POMPEII IS EXCAVATED
 
270 years after the discovery of Pompeii, the Archaeological Park celebrates its wonders by announcing new ongoing excavations in Regio V
 
On the 23rd March 1748, ten years after the discovery of Herculaneum, a fortunate discovery of certain finds in the vicinity of Civita, refocused the attention of the Bourbon excavations to this area. Initially believed to be the city of Stabiae, only in 1763 were the ruins discovered to instead be those of the ancient city of Pompeii.
 
270 years later, the anniversary of this great beginning, which changed the course of archaeological history and gave the unique heritage of Pompeii to the world, is celebrated through the announcement of new excavations, which recently began in a section of Regio V. This is an important excavation in an area which has not been investigated since the postwar period.

Thursday, March 22 at 11:30 the site area, with the first structures emerged and the findings found, were illustrated by the General Manager, Massimo Osanna and the Director General of the Great Pompeii project, Mauro Cipolletta.
