Twenty in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tions that high­light the most sig­nif­i­cant as­pects of daily life in Pom­peii and Her­cu­la­neum prior to the erup­tion of Ve­su­vius in 79 A. D. Visi­tors can ad­mire faith­ful re­pro­duc­tions of the Fo­rum of Pom­peii, the Ther­mal Baths and the The­atre of Her­cu­la­neum, still buried be­neath the mod­ern city. The ex­hi­bi­tion will also fea­ture vir­tual rep­re­sen­ta­tions of the House of the Tragic Poet, the House of the Zither Player, the House of the Fawn, and that of the Labyrinth, sev­eral of the finest ex­am­ples of Ro­man houses that can be viewed at Pom­peii. The ex­hi­bi­tion will be held at Villa Regina, in Bosco­re­ale, a Ro­man farm­house once used to pro­duce wine. In ad­di­tion to eigh­teen large un­der­ground con­tain­ers used to store must, this ar­rest­ing villa boasts spe­cific ar­eas ded­i­cated to the ac­tiv­i­ties that once took place within it. To­day, the site also in­cludes a vast ar­chae­o­log­i­cal area re­cently re­de­vel­oped by the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Bosco­re­ale. The ex­hi­bi­tion is cu­rated by Fon­dazione Cives Mav, the Vir­tual Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal Mu­seum of Her­cu­la­neum which, thanks to ini­tia­tives of this na­ture, in­tends to fo­cus on pro­mot­ing the vast ar­chae­o­log­i­cal her­itage of the Ve­su­vius area by also pro­mot­ing sites like Villa Regina. Un­til 25 Jan­uary. Mon- Fri from 10am to 1pm; Sat/ Sun from 10am to 3pm. Ad­mis­sion free. >> www. mav. it Villa Regina. Via Le Cor­bus­ier, Bosco­re­ale, Naples. T: 0819575347
