The guide to the exhibition Pompei e gli Etruschiaccompanies visitors on a journey of discovery to explore the foundation of Pompeii around 600 B.C. as a town in the heart of the Mediterranean of the first millennium before the birth of Christ. The splendid exhibits tell a story of frontiers, melting pots and contrasts: from the earliest settlements in Campania by Etruscans and Greeks, to the cultural transformation the local populace underwent, reflected in their increasingly rich grave goods, up to the great wars of the 5th century BC and the subsequent decline of the Etruscan Campanian world and the dawn of the ascent of Rome. A story in which Pompeii and its territory have proved to be an incredibly rich source of information, not only on the Roman world, but also on that diverse multi-ethnic and multicultural world that was a prelude to Mare Nostrum.
