Pompeii is one of the most popular archaeological site in the world because it was frozen in time by a massive volcanic eruption that took place in the I century AD. No other place can better describe the everyday life of a Roman colony of 2000 years ago.

Through the eyes of a pompeian citizen we will be able to follow his routine life the day of the eruption.

With the help of videos and pictures we will virtually explore some of the gems this ancient city has given us back.
