The city of Pompeii used to be hustling and bustling port town on the east cost of Italian peninsula, near Naples. Archaeologists believe that Pompeii was founded by Osci or Oscan tribes around 6th or 7th century BC. Dominated by Romans from the 4th century BC, was finally conquered and officially became Roman colony in the year 80 BC. Pompeii was busy port town, with a well developed infrastructure, complex water system, theaters, amphitheater, baths, markets, villas and temples. The whole city together with few neighboring villages and resort towns was destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Pompeii was buried under 4 to 6 m (13-20 ft) of ash and pumice. At the time of the eruption of 79AD the population of the city was estimated at around 11,000 inhabitants. The city was lost for about 1,500 years before it was rediscovered by farmers in 1599 and then excavated 150 years later by Spanish archaeologist Rocque Joaquin de Alcubierre. The entire site has been sealed for a very long time, but the artifacts unearthed in Pompeii are perfectly preserved thanks for the lack of oxygen and very dry climate. All these objects provide incredible insight into the life in Roman Empire. The voids created by the bodies had been filled with plaster to create three-dimensional models of people who died during the eruption of 79 AD. We call these models Plaster Casts. For over 250 years the archaeological site of Pompeii has been an important and popular tourist destination. Today Pompeii is the official UNESCO World Heritage Site. Archaeological Museum of Naples.

One of the most important mosaics kept here is the enormous mosaic of Alexander the Great fighting Darius of Persia. The Farnese collection is an extensive collection of marble statues excavated in Rome in 1500's and transferred to Naples by Farnese family. The most famous statue in Farnese collection is The Farnese Bull. The Egyptian collection has 2,500 items assembled by private collectors in 18th century, and is one of the largest in Italy.
