New furnished rooms discovered in Pompeii

-

New discovery in the archaeological park of Pompeii, in the northern area of ​​Regio V, one of the great districts of the ancient city: small furnished rooms were found around the sumptuous lararium depicting an ‘enchanted garden’, already excavated in 2018 during interventions maintenance of excavation fronts. The immobile life of Pompeii resurfaces in the light, with the last moments of life ‘photographed’ in the furniture shattered by the eruption of 79 AD. hastily during the catastrophe and recovered today with the tools of the stratigraphic excavation. But also less documented objects such as a precious decorated perfume burner and the unique group of seven waxed tablets collected from a cord, of which it was possible to make a cast.In the same area, with access from the alley of Lucrezio Frontone, in 2018 a luxurious lararium emerged. richly decorated: a room used for worship, which featured on one wall a sacred niche to the Lares, tutelary deities of the house and below two large agatodemon snakes (good demon) symbol of prosperity and good omen. And all around walls painted with idyllic landscapes and a lush nature with plants and birds and on one side a whole wall with hunting scenes on a red background. “In the Roman Empire there was a large slice of the population that fought for the their social status and for which the ‘daily bread’ was anything but taken for granted – explains the director of the archaeological park of Pompeii, Gabriel Zuchtriegel – A vulnerable class during political crises and famines, but also ambitious to climb the social ladder “. Domus del Larario in Pompeii, “it was possible to have the courtyard adorned with the lararium and the tank for the cistern with exceptional paintings, but evidently the means were not enough to decorate the five rooms of the house, one of which served as a deposit. In the other rooms, two on the upper floor and reachable via a mezzanine, we found a mixture of objects, some of precious materials such as bronze and glass, others of daily use. The wooden furniture of which it was possible to make the casts are extremely simple “. Zuchtriegel still observes:” We do not know the inhabitants of the house but certainly the culture of idleness that inspired the wonderful decoration of the courtyard was more of a future that they dreamed of being a lived reality “.” Pompeii really does not cease to amaze and it is a beautiful story of redemption, the demonstration that when in Italy you work as a team, you invest in young people, in research and innovation you can achieve extraordinary results “. The Minister of Culture, Dario Franceschini, comments on the discovery of new furnished rooms inside the archaeological park of Pompeii.” Pompeii is a continuous discovery – observes Massimo Osanna, director general of the Museums – But above all it is confirmed to be an inexhaustible study and research laboratory, which makes it possible to never put an end to the research, but on the contrary to add new data to the history of the city. Great Pompeii project, with which other excavations have been determined through higher protection needs, has delivered to the archaeological park an experience and a methodology that today is pursued in an ordinary regime, in which exceptional results continue to emerge “.
