Text in English:
The destructive fury of Vesuvius raged the 24th August in 79 a.C. Buried under three metres of ash, Pompeii suddenly stopped living. From the Forum to the Temple of Iside; from the House of the Faun to the Barracks of the Gladiators; thousands of bodies lay on the ground: slaves and merchants, women, children and rich landowners. After sleeping for centuries, the buried city sees light again: the dawning of the most exciting archaeological discovery.

The Villa of Mystery: An outside view of the Villa chowing the covered porch.

Diomedes’s Villa: Out of the city is this luxurious villa which in the dining-room and the swimming pool are shown in the photograph.

The House of the Vittii: The garden in the inside courtyard of the house, of which the majority has been rebuilt, was rich in statues, columns and fountains.

The House of the Faun: It is certainly one of the biggest and luxurious houses of Pompeii. This house takes its name from the little bronze, dancing statue which decorates the rain-water rectangular basin, in Tuscanic

Captions for photos of buildings identified on the lower section of the panel and connected to positions on the lay-out rendering of the ancient city and its landmarks::

The Temple of Fortuna Augusta: The Temple had a political strength that spread through the Imperial belief – so much so, that when a new Emperor was proclaimed, the ministers made sure that a statue was placed in the temple.

The Temple of Apollo: Along Via Marina, in a sacred area, is the temple dedicated to Apollo. A Greek belief that, through the colonies, was passed on to the Italian population. In Pompeii, it was present from the foundation to the VI century a.c.

The Temple of Jupiter: It is in a dominant position in the Forum with the mass of Vesuvius behind it. It is regarded as the emblematic image of the destruction of Pompeii.

The Temple of Vespasiano: It was built after 62 a.C. for the creed of the Emperor.
