Throughout history we have built wonderful places whose beauty fascinate us today as a timeless spectacle. We are able to walk inside these places, step on the ground and imagine how many women and men have walked the same path everyday hundreds of years before. Like everything precious, beauty is also fragile. Our presence that allow the revival of those places, is able, at the same time, to destroy them. These places of history have an important need for someone who takes care of them, preserves their beauty, keeps them alive, and increases their value. The value of historical heritage, restored, returns to everyone’s disposal and becomes extraordinarily current to offer work, turnover, and prestige.
And this is the formidable work that the restoration industry does every day to allow us to enjoy our history.

Insula of the lovers chaste

The insula was a building type made up of several houses. It has been the subject of archaeological excavations until recently, but it is not yet investigated in all its sectors.
At the time of the eruption in 79 AD renovations were in progress, probably to repair the damage caused by an earthquake, as evidenced by the plumbing work and the redecoration in progress.
The insula takes its name from the decoration of a triclinium with paintings depicting three banquets, including one with the exchange of a languid kiss between two lovers.

Villa of Diomedes

Suburban villa attributed to M. Arrius Diomedes, freedman whose tomb is in front of the monumental entrance to the villa. The Villa is one of the largest buildings in the entire city of Pompeii with an extension of 3500 square meters.
During the archaeological excavation a total of 36 bodies were found; one skeleton had a key, was wearing a gold ring and a cloth containing coins worth 1356 sesterces.
The villa was one of the first buildings to be excavated in Pompeii and was a fundamental destination for all nineteenth century travellers, as evidenced by the numerous graffiti bearing the names of famous travellers, such as the Count of Cavour.
