PRESENTING THE WORKSITES – Activities ongoing at the great worksites of Pompeii presented to the public
An initiative for the MyPompeii community
During the months of May and June, the Archaeological Park of Pompeii is opening the sites of its most significant restoration and valorisation works to the public: The House of the Silver Wedding, the House of the Dioscuri, the Suburban Villa of Civita Giuliana, the House of the Vettii, the public fountains, the Tower of Mercury, the House of Castricius and the House of the Library in the Insula Occidentalis, the Villa of Diomedes, the Women’s Forum Baths, the site of green area maintenance, the Park of the Bourbon Powder Factory and the Villa San Marco.
These are structures of great renown, where the stabilisation and restoration interventions currently in progress will be presented directly by the appropriate experts themselves. It will be an opportunity to not only learn more about the delicate yet complex work of restoration, through the direct accounts and vision of the experts in the field - including archaeologists, architects, restorers and engineers - but also a chance to enjoy an exclusive preview of dwellings of particular elegance and prestige, or which are in an unusually well-preserved state.
Every Thursday, from the 5th May to the 23rd June, with two timed visits available for each site - at 11:00 and 12:00 - for a maximum of 20 people in each group, it will be possible to reserve access to one of the sites, according to the following timetable:
