I confirm and approve of it: our country is truly an open-air museum. Day after day, we are witnessing the rebirth of ancient hidden wonders, which time has buried and which, thanks to the help of archaeologists, are making a comeback.
In recent weeks, enormous progress has been made in the archaeological field, with the recovery of precious finds. Lots of little bits that help us clarify what was for us a very distant past.
What if I told you that there is a second Pompeii? This emerged with great astonishment among scientists who brought home a result never seen before. Unexpected and extraordinary – that’s the statement.
What a discovery: Cupra Marittima is the new Pompeii? The similarities are striking. The remains of an ancient Roman temple have been found
Yes, we are talking about the town of Cupra – a town in the province of Ascoli Piceno. Its name has Roman origins and is due precisely to the goddess Cupra, venerated by the people.
Cupra becomes the protagonist of a sensational discovery. In recent months, archaeological excavations carried out in the city have clarified how the Romans lived, what their habits and customs were, as well as trade.
Central to the recovery work is the discovery of a Roman temple. The aspect that most struck archaeologists is the extraordinary resemblance to Pompeii. In fact, some common characteristics of considerable impact have been highlighted.
In particular, the colors and the walls of the temple in full Pompeian style – this is how it was defined – channeled attention. Especially the red color that we often encounter when touring city districts is the master.

After a first analysis, it was possible to establish that the temple had been built with Augustus and that it had been explicitly requested to resemble Pompeii as much as possible.
