A Roman story, is hailed as "unprecedented" and is held on the second tier of the Colosseum.Lazio region was reclassified as a lower-risk 'yellow zone' under Italy's covid-19 restrictions.The show is divided into three large sections – the alliance phase, the Roman colony phase, the decline and end of Pompeii.It also focuses on two crucial moments that shaped the long history of Pompeii: the Roman siege of 89 BC and the earthquake of 62 AD, up until the catastrophic event of 79 AD that brought about the destruction of the Vesuvian city while Rome continued on its path to become a metropolis without precedent.Promoted by the Parco archeologico del Colosseo, with the scientific collaboration of the Parco archeologico di Pompei and the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, the exhibition was conceived and curated by the celebrated, recently-deceased archaeologist Mario Torelli.Entry to the exhibition is included in the Colosseum tickets which must be booked in advance online.
