“Special” sightseeing in two domus
at the House of Gaius Julius Polybius

personally the work of archaeologists and restorers.
hologram of Gaius Julius
Polybius, the rich freedman landlord of the homonym
domus, will accompany visitors
in the most important places of his residence, until the last room
where he fled with his family at the time of the
eruption and where it was found
a young pregnant woman who returns to live into a hologram. In an
hour you can watch the daily life of the inhabitants of the house
till the tragedy of the eruption.
The visit to the site/event of
the House of the Chaste Lovers reserves, instead, the sensation of
living an archaeological discovery, thanks to the work of
archaeologists and restorers. Through a system of
suspended bridges, you can see
from above, perfectly preserved, the oven of the bakery, the two
stables with animal skeletons, a garden faithfully recreated and the
beautiful frescoes and mosaics.
A series of
multimedia technologies offers a virtual reconstruction of the
function of the different environments. The works will be visible
from Via dell'Abbondanza through
transparent panels. The two beautiful
domus will be usable every day by the formula of the
didactic trail, with reservations required and additional ticket (5
€ for each visit, 7 € for both domus).
