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....

Apt. Therapy

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.

Some of the real structures in the Pompeii main city center

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

See my other post on traveling and spending a
"Day in Pompeii and Herculaneum" here.
