As we have just mentioned, Pompeii is a veritable open-air museum. With an essential charm, it was an urban center in every way.
The first excavation campaigns date back to the 16th century, precisely to 1748. Thanks to this work, it was possible to unearth most of the city. The very first step taken saw the discovery of the walls which then led to the discovery of the forum and the theatre.
Subsequently, a multitude of art objects, small structures and a series of tools testifying to the daily life of the community were brought back into vogue. Frescoes were found that adorned the walls of houses, as well as the gruesome discovery of many human remains caught unawares by the eruption.
Today, we never stop digging and searching. Very recently, the remains of a bourgeois house were discovered. As mentioned earlier, many everyday objects are preserved and displayed. With this type of discovery, in fact, the quality of life in the most modest environments is enhanced.
