Located outside of the excavations of Herculaneum, the theater, still incorporated in the tufa bank, was dug through several tunnels in the eighteenth century. The visit takes place now through a series of flights of stairs and passageways that allow you to see parts of the buried building, down to the floor of the orchestra, paved in white marble. The space of the stage is largely occupied by two large eighteenth-century piers made by Francesco La Vega for static reasons. The front scene has the door directed at the Center, the two doors and four sides hospitales side niches, where originall

Villa dei Papiri

The Villa of the Papyri, one of the largest and most sumptuous Roman villas ever explored, placed at the extreme northern limit of the area of "new digs", was excavated, at the behest of Charles III of Bourbon, with an articulated system of descent and ventilation shafts and underground tunnels, between 1750 and 1764. The investigations were carried out under the guidance, first, by a surveyor Spanish, Don Gioacchino and Rocco Alcubierre, then, of the Swiss engineer Karl Weber, who is also the plan dated July 20, 1754 with the discoveries of sculptural artifacts. Later excavations were continu
