Pompeii archaeological ruins are famous worldwide for being a unique example of a two thousand years old city frozen in times and the first ever documented natural catastrophe in history. This city was covered by the ashes of a sudden eruption in 79 a. c. and it remained untouched up to the XVIII century when little by little it was brought to light. Monuments as the Forum, the Amphitheatre, the private houses and all the other findings show us not only the physical places where the life took place, but allow also interdisciplinary investigations which satisfy any curiosity about the habits of what was an incredibly modern society, 'till showing us private people's stories.
