Pompeii and Santorini exhibition in Rome

Rome's Scuderie del Quirinale hosts an exhibition with priceless treasures from Pompeii and Santorini, two cities buried by volcanic eruptions more than two millennia ago.

11 Oct-6 Jan. The exhibition Pompei e Santorini – L’eternità in un giorno features priceless treasures from the excavations of Akrotiri, a thriving port city on the Greek island of Santorini that was buried by a volcanic eruption in 1628 BC.

The Hellenistic finds will be constrated with some of the most emblematic vestiges of Pompeii, which came to similarly devastating end some 1,700 years later, in 79 AD.

The exhibition is described as a immersive journey back in time to discover "two cities buried within a few hours by the same volcanic fury that also preserved them over the millennia covered by ashes."
In addition to fragments of frescoes, jewels, ceramics, furniture and everyday objects, the exhibition will include works by modern and contemporary artists including J. M. W. Turner, Renato Guttuso, Andy Warhol, Alberto Burri, Giuseppe Penone and Damian Hirst, highlighting how the rediscovery of buried cities has nourished the artistic imagination. 

For full details see Scuderie del Quirinale website.
