MAXI edition of the Archaeological Guide to Pompei, including a long chapter on Herculaneum. Accurate reconstructions offer the reader a visual comparison between today’s remaining monuments and how they were at the height of their splendour.
The archaeological guide to Pompei, which also includes a chapter dedicated to Herculaneum, offers the reader a visual comparison between today’s remaining monuments and how they were at the height of their splendour.
The illustrations of the parts missing today were created with the help of an innovative and effective method, obtained by superimposing shaped, perforated cards depicting the ancient architectural parts on the photographs. This makes it possible to observe the differences between today’s fascinating ancient ruins and the building past splendour.
This easily readable and updated guide, contains itineraries for visiting archaeological areas and in-depth fact sheets on the most interesting sites.
The guide is also enriched with modern graphics, numerous photographs, and colour drawings.
Thanks to QR codes on the back of the illustrations, it is also possible to view (with a smartphone or tablet) 12 video clips made in computer graphics and the complete “Pompei AD 79” virtual tour.
