Pompeii The Movie and the Real Pompeii
The movie about Pompeii....the poster lettering is done in Pompeii Red,
one of the most essential colors in Italian painting history.
See more on Pompeii....
The eruption from the movie
Mt. Vesuvius in background looking from Naples
Pompeii Red the pigment used for so many years...this fresco was uncovered in Pompeii
Perhaps this was taken from the area I photographed below where pompeii paint is still visible.

Not only was the town of Pompeii destroyed but also Herculaneum and other cities in the area.

"Day in Pompeii and Herculaneum" here.
