Secrets of Pompeii by Emidio de Albentiis

Book Description

This title presents a lavishly illustrated and fascinating exploration of the art, architecture, and archaeology of one of the world's best preserved Roman cities. The remains of the ancient city of Pompeii, frozen in time following the tragic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79, have provided archaeologists and historians with invaluable evidence into the daily life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire. "Secrets of Pompeii" is a superbly illustrated volume that takes a fascinating look at how ancient Romans interacted in their public squares and marketplaces, how they worshipped, decorated their homes, and spent their leisure time - at the theatre, in the gyms, and in the baths and brothels. Featuring full-colour photographs of architectural remains and exquisite details from a range of ancient artworks, including wall paintings, sculpture, mosaics, and carved reliefs, this book offers an unparalleled glimpse into a lost world.
