The city of Pompeii remained in the exact and precise state in which it was at the time of the eruption, like a photograph with tragic outlines, a real and unique testimony of the time that was, until 1748, when thanks to King Charles III of Bourbon, the first excavations began.
What we can admire today by visiting the archaeological park of Pompeii, which we remember to be Unesco heritage, through organized and guided tours, is exactly the photograph of a Roman city, a surreal and ever more precise vision of the past. Walking in the streets, entering the patrician houses, admiring the paintings on the walls, looking out to the shops of the market, all this is an indescribable emotion, a leap in time to do with respect and admiration.
