Scale Model of Pompeii.jpg

The Archaelogical Museum in Naples is HUGE! And again, I arrive when some of the major exhibits are closed! Most of the Pompeii-related rooms were open, though, and the centerpiece of the entrance is this scale model of Pompeii (shown here is the western half of the city).

 

The forum is the large open space in the middle; the Via dell'Abbondanza is the main street heading up center right. Also in the room was a video montage of Pompeii-featured film clips being played on a giant movie screen (it included Pink Floyd playing live in Pompeii, and of course, Fellini films).
