New Domus re-emerges at Pompeii
First Pompeian style ‘vintage’ home was rich with frescoes
Excavations at the Pompeii archaeological site have uncovered a new ancient Roman treasure – a home that has been baptised Domus ‘Vintage’.
The domus on the so-called street of balconies was rich in frescoes.
“The domus had ‘vintage’ decoration in the first Pompeian style,” Pompeii Director Massimo Osanna said as ANSA got a sneak preview.
“The owner must have been wealthy and cultured, aware of the value of painting”.
