Revisiting the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii
Preserved since 79 AD, when an eruption of Mount Vesuvius buried the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum with a hot rain of ash and lapilli.
We return to the past with these evocative images from Massimo Ripani. You almost feel the ghosts between the colorful frescoes and miraculously preserved buildings.
