News from Oplontis. “A picco sul mare. Arredi di lusso al tempo di Poppea”, is the name of an exhibition that tells the daily life of Roman aristocracy in the first century AC. The exhibit in the Palazzo Criscuolo’s rooms, the city hall of Torre Annunziata, includes ornaments, furnishings and jewels which adorned homes and people in 79AD, at the time of catastrophic eruption of the Mount Vesuvius. Extraordinary objects, which will remain on show for 3 months. Over 40 pieces of great value, many never seen before, some shown to the public last time 40 years ago. The exhibit is only the first step of a permanent museum that will come out from the storage rooms of Oplontis.
