When a world archaeologic site digitally takes over a Parisian museum… The Grand Palais offers you to dive into the excavations conducted in 2010 in Pompeii with an exhibition simply called “Pompei” and running from July 1 to September 27, 2020.
Mostly digital and immersive, this retrospective offers visitors to discover this city stuck in time through screenings, 3D reconstructions as well as works from previous and new excavations. Listed as Unesco world heritage, the site saw the excavations resume after the collapse of the House Of The Gladiators in 2010. Financially left behind, it didn’t take long for the international community to resume the work and enable the discovery of a new neighborhood.
Portrait of a women, mural depicting animal scenes, pictures of goddess, art and craft items, exceptional mosaics, human skeletons… as many archaeologic novelties brought back to day light enabling to polish the knowledge about this emblematic spot and its history that the Grand Palais has decided to highlight with a brand-new exhibition “in a spectacular and impressive way”.
A city filled with history that continues to be just as fascinating, even beyond the archaeologists and other historians specialized in the story of the city submerged by lava. Let’s go and discover the past of Pompeii, friends, shall we?
