The Pompeii exhibition plunged us into the heart of the drama and the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii. Models of machines and 3D reconstitutions allow the visitor to experience the destruction of the city and to identify with the inhabitants of that time, immobilized by the ashes of the volcano.
Over one hundred archaeological items originating from Pompeii, including a large number being exhibited for the first time, demonstrate the knowledge that the Romans had about nature as well as their scientific and technical know-how at the moment Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.
And while we were still hunting in the woods covered in fur (I think at that date), on the other continents lived the original inhabitants and no white immigrants.
The exhibition started in a round room where you stood and it was as if you were in the middle of the drama ! you saw the roofs collapse the people running and under our feet the floor was trembling. What a sensation !
In this round room we experienced an earthquake and how approximately it must have felt
It was amazing what utensils they already had ! Hasn't change a lot ever since. Pots for different uses, jewelry and candle holders.
The statues too were perfect
They had taps, and tube connectors, bath tubs and even underfloor heating !
kind of cranes, wheels and carriages
The posters on the walls showed how the city had once been
They also had all kind of items to make and measure the quality of wine
And there were also 2 bodies, in the position they had been found.
