It promises to be very interesting.

"Pompeii and the Greeks tells the stories of a meeting: starting with an Italian city, Pompeii, and examining its frequent contact with the Greek Mediterranean. By tracing craftsmen, architects, decorative styles and focusing on precious imported objects yet also Greek graffiti inscriptions on the city walls, the exhibition sheds light on the many diverse souls of an ancient city, and its temporary and unstable identity.

Over 600 finds are exhibited, including ceramics, ornaments, weapons, architectural elements, sculptures from Pompeii, Stabiae, Sorrento, Cumae, Capua, Poseidonia, Metapontum, Torre di Satriano and even inscriptions in their diverse spoken languages (Greek, Etruscan, and Paleoitalic), silverware and Greek sculptures reproduced in the Roman age.

The exhibition is borne of both a scientific investigation and ongoing research which has for the first time shed light upon unknown elements of Pompeii; the objects, hailing from major national and European museums, are divided into 13 thematic sections and reinterpret places and monuments of the Vesuvian city with their own “biographies”, at a site which has ever been under the public gaze."

"The large exhibition “Pompei e i Greci” (Pompeii and the Greeks) opens its doors on April 12, 2017 exposing the magnificence of Ancient Greece beyond its borders. The exhibition will be hosted in the arena of ancient Pompeii and curated by famous Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi, featuring three audiovisual installations."
