La Villa de los Papiros: Visits for Secondary & High Schools Students


Casa del Lector. Paseo de la Chopera, 14. Madrid

In the 18th century investigators discovered in this mansion known as “the one of the papyro” the only known existing library of the old Rome. Here at Herculano and close to Naples, Italy, the ashes of the eruption in 79 DC of Vesuvius preserved this treasure for us. The exhibition shows us, what was reading about in the old Rome of the fist century DC and gives an insight on the impact that the discovery of Pompeij and Herculano had on the European culture in the 18th century.
