The exhibition, “Pompeii, the Infinite Life” featuring ancient Roman relics was opened at the Panlongcheng Site Museum, Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei Province, on January 23, 2019.

120 sets of cultural treasures to be presented - relics such as murals, marble statues, plaster casts, bronze and gold wares, etc, unearthed from the ancient city of Pompeii - are from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples.

Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city close to modern Naples, Italy. It was obliterated after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, which buried the place under 4 to 6 meters of volcanic ash, ending its glorious civilization.

At this exhibition, exhibits will be shown to Hubei museumgoers by means of multimedia and scene restoration technology, focusing on the achievements of Roman culture and art at its height. (hubei.gov.cn by Ruan Xinqi)
