Buried by a blanket of ash and lapilli due to a sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, Pompeii came to light after almost 1700 years and as if by magic the everyday life of an ordinary day in the early imperial age remained crystallized in its gestures, in its secrets, in the panic of the last moments.
