In Stabiano: Exploring the Ancient Seaside Villas

ATLANTA.- The Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University presents the exhibit In Stabiano: Exploring the Ancient Seaside Villas of the Roman Elite This exhibition brings to light art objects and archaeological artifacts found in four ancient Roman villas overlooking the Bay of Naples and the modern city of Castellammare di Stabiae, which was stunningly well preserved by the same catastrophic eruption that buried Pompeii and Herculaneum in AD 79. The villas are recent archaeological finds and are part of an extended luxury resort, most of which has yet to be unearthed. 73 frescoes, stuccoes, and artifacts that have never before left Italy, including the world-famous Flora, are featured.

The most striking component is the reconstruction of a “triclinium” (“three-couch dining room”), presenting the entire, sumptuously decorated environment of entertaining and dining, a central use of the Roman aristocrat's vacation villa. The exhibition is organized by the Restoring Ancient Stabiae Foundation and the Superintendancy of Archeology of Pompeii and is toured in the U.S. by International Arts & Artists; partially sponsored by NIAF, Grand Circle Foundation, and the Italian Cultural Institute. Additional support generously provided by the Massey Charitable Trust and Pirelli Tires.
