A past that comes back again

The extraordinary archaeological city of Pompeii, the excavations of Ercolano, Oplonti, the recent ones of Somma Vesuviana, of Villa Regina in Boscoreale, Terzigno, the magnificent eighteenth-century villas of Miglio d'Oro, the Masserie Vesuviane and the barrel roofs of Terzigno, the Antiquarium of Boscoreale, the Mav, virtual archaeological museum in Ercolano, the lavas in permanent exhibition of Creator Vesevo, along the ascent to the Gran Cono, the Railway Museum of Pietrarsa in Portici, where the first Italian line built by the Bourbons let the nobles be comfortable when they moved into the villa, the Coral Museum in Torre del Greco, that of the Peasant Civilization in Somma Vesuviana, once again tell of a story of intertwining and interactions between man and the volcano, which is also reflected in the flavours, crafts and traditions of these places.
