Presenting Pompeii: Steps towards Reconciling Conservation and Tourism at an Ancient Site

An article by Alia Wallace in Papers from the Institute of Archaeology is available in PDF form from the journal's website here.


Abstract:

Mass tourism can have many negative impacts on archaeological sites. As tourism increases, so does the need to actively manage these concerns. At the archaeological site of Pompeii this is particularly evident as tourism and its physical impact increase each year. This paper begins with a historical overview of the development of Pompeii as an archaeological site and heritage attraction and goes on to present the preliminary results of research into how presentation and interpretation can be used as a tool for site conservation and preservation at Pompeii. In 2011, extensive visitor observations and movement mapping were carried out to understand how visitor behaviours impact the site and how visitors move throughout the site. In depth interviews were also conducted with visitors to understand why they visit Pompeii and what they want from the experience. The results have provided a starting point for understanding how to develop a sustainable interpretation and presentation strategy that utilises the vast site more effectively and provides a better visitor experience.

"The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection" opens in Cleveland
The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79 destroyed, yet paradoxically preserved the ancient city of Pompeii, providing a vivid glimpse into the daily lives of ancient Romans. Since the rediscovery of the site in the 1700s, centuries of leading artists—from Piranesi, Ingres and Alma-Tadema to Duchamp, Rothko, Warhol and Gormley — have been inspired to re-imagine it in paintings, sculpture, photographs, performance and film. While exhibitions dedicated to the archaeology of Pompeii have been numerous, this is the first time this ancient city and cataclysmic event is explored through the lens of modern creators and thinkers. Featuring nearly 100 works, The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection will be on view from February 24 through July 7, 2013.

Gormley's sculpture was inspired by Gormley's 2002 visit to Pompeii. The exhibition will be on view from Feb. 24 through July 7, 2013. CLEVELAND, OH.- The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79 destroyed, yet paradoxically preserved the ancient city of Pompeii, providing a vivid glimpse into the daily lives of ancient Romans. Since the rediscovery of the site in the 1700s, centuries of leading artists—from Piranesi, Ingres and Alma-Tadema to Duchamp, Rothko, Warhol and Gormley — have been inspired to re-imagine it in paintings, sculpture, photographs, performance and film. While exhibitions dedicated to the archaeology of Pompeii have been numerous, this is the first time this ancient city and cataclysmic event is explored through the lens of modern creators and thinkers. Featuring nearly 100 works, The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection will be on view from February 24 through July 7, 2013. Organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum, the title of the exhibition, The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection, is inspired by Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s Last Days of Pompeii, an incredibly popular 1834 novel that combined a Victorian love story with sensational subplots of pagan decadence, Christianity and volcanic eruption. The book was presented as archaeologically accurate and helped transform Pompeii into a place to stage fiction. It captivated generations of readers, prompted tourists to visit the site and inspired many works of art in a wide variety of media. “Each generation creates a new Pompeii for themselves,” stated Jon Seydl, exhibition co-organizer and The Paul J. and Edith Ingalls Vignos, Jr. Curator of European Paintings and Sculpture (1500-1800) at the Cleveland Museum of Art. “It’s an astonishingly rich subject for artists, who have returned over and over again to Pompeii, remaking it to suit the preoccupations of their own time.” Mixing chronology and media, the exhibition breaks down according to three broad themes. Decadence looks at why we consider Pompeii as a place of luxury, sex, violence and excess. Apocalypse explores Pompeii as the archetype of disaster—the cataclysm to which all others are compared—from the American Civil War and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to 9/11. And Resurrection considers how Pompeii has become a place to re-create and recast the ancient past. The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection contains six galleries of remarkable works of art exploring these ideas from more than fifty public and private collections in Europe and the United States, including the Louvre, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. Appearing only in Cleveland is a suite of ten large paintings by Mark Rothko, preliminary studies for the Seagram Building commission in the late 1950s. Rothko eventually withdrew from the project, and this is the first time these ten works have been exhibited in the same space. Also appearing in the Cleveland show is a 1991 installation called The Dog from Pompei by American artist, Allan McCollum, which brings together 16 replicas of perhaps the best-known of all the body casts from Pompeii, a startling work that has a powerful impact on the visitor. “The scale of the disaster and the remarkable archaeological record have inspired some of the most interesting and important artists of the last three centuries,” stated Seydl. “All these artists used Pompeii to create entirely new stories that tell us much more about their own time than about antiquity.” Share on facebook Share on linkedin Share on twitter Share on email Share on print More Sharing Services 11 Today's News February 24, 2013 "The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection" opens in Cleveland Christie's New York presents the Sale of Indian and Southeast Asian Art in March Franz West: Where is my Eight? opens at Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Major Exhibition offers unprecedented examination of Picasso's black-and-white palette Leading and emerging artists at Christie's Sale of South Asian Modern and Contemporary Art in March Hammer Galleries launches interactive virtual tour of exhibition of works by Grandma Moses and other masters Guggenheim presents No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia Art Institute of Chicago now offering tours for handheld devices with "Indoor GPS" New exhibition of contemporary art investigates the visual dialogue of the 1980s Banksy graffiti work pulled from US sale; work disappeared from a London wall earlier this month Exhibition of photographs by August Sander and Sherrie Levine on view at Paula Cooper Gallery New series of oil paintings by Michael Bauer on view at Alison Jacques Gallery Surrey auctioneer Ewbank's to sell Francis Bacon 'Screaming Pope' paintings Installation of "Edward Steichen's Glamour Photography" shows Hollywood's Golden Age National Music Centre of Canada breaks ground in Calgary Julia Montilla brings the collective imaginary of Marian apparitions to the Joan Miró Foundation PinchukArtCentre presents "Forest Means Cheaper", a solo show by Alexey Salmanov Tache Art hosts "CMYK", its first solo exhibition with Sudanese-born artist Mutaz El Emam Ryan Travis Christian spends three weeks creating large-scale wall drawing at CAM Raleigh Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery in Auckland presents exhibition by Jimmy James Kouratoras Most Popular Last Seven Days 1.- Little Black Gallery introduces the work of emerging photographer Tyler Udall 2.- Frick presents first U.S. exhibition on Renaissance artist Piero della Francesca 3.- Spain's Prado Museum finds 'unique' painting of French ruler Louis of Orleans 4.- Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane Masterpiece Drawings from the Casa Buonarroti opens in Virginia 5.- Sotheby's Contemporary Art Sale brings £74.4m/$116.4m- 2nd highest total for a February auction in London 6.- 1901: A momentous and turbulent year for Pablo Picasso explored in new exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery 7.- Archaeologists find large sculpture of Huehuetéotl, God of Fire, atop the Pyramid of the Sun 8.- Philadelphia's Institute of Contemporary Art opens exhibition of artists engaged with clothing 9.- Archaeologists find large sculpture of Huehuetéotl, God of Fire, atop the Pyramid of the Sun 10.- Renowned ancient Roman mosaic from Israel, on international tour, makes final U.S. stop at the Penn Museum Banksy Arrest Just One Giant Hoax Abstract Expressionism's Softer Side This Year's Armory Show Lineup Is Finally Released Hollywood Glamour At Its Most Irresistible Kara Walker Calls New Exhibit Her 'Never-Ending War With Race' Four Explosive Works From New York Art Giant Julian Schnabel LOOK: Real-Life Supervillains Become Comic Characters Happy Birthday, Ansel Adams!

British Museum exhibition: first look news article

Media coverage of the upcoming British Museum exhibition Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum has begun.

An article in yesterday's Guardian newspaper included details of what will be on show as well as an interactive set of photographs and maps of finds at Herculaneum. Both bits of news coverage are worth checking out!

Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum exhibition catalogue now in stock


The British Museum is pleased to announce the Life and death in Pompeii and Herculaneum is now in stock and available to buy online at the special Museum price of £25.00.

This captivating book explores the lives of the ordinary people of Pompeii and Herculaneum – the two cities on the Bay of Naples that were buried by the catastrophic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. The plaster-cast bodies of the victims are the most vivid shocking reminders of the horrific event that made Pompeii famous, but who were these men, women and children so cruelly frozen in time? 

Exploring striking new discoveries and over 200 sensational artefacts, the author, who is the curator of the exhibition, brings the inhabitants of Pompeii and Herculaneum back to life from the ashes and ruins of their own homes. Amongst the artefacts are magnificent mosaics, a carbonized wooden cradle and a birth certificate of little girl, each of which is accompanied by stunning new photography. 

An unparalleled glimpse into the daily life of the Roman Empire.

Call for participants - Spring break classes and Summer Fieldwork


Call for participants – Spring break classes, Summer boot camp in physical anthropology, and excavation of a Roman villa with baths on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius




The Apolline Project is an open research network, which sheds light on the hitherto neglected past of the area to the north of Mt. Vesuvius, in the bay of Naples. The project has run actively since 2004 and has several components, with current major work focusing on a Medieval church and a Roman villa with baths buried by the volcanoclastic debris of Vesuvius.

The Apolline Project is now open to applications for the 2013 lab and field activities, which can be divided into three groups: lab works during Spring break, Summer fieldwork at the Roman villa with baths in Pollena Trocchia, Summer School in Human Osteology at the Medieval church in Pernosano.



For further information, please go to: www.apollineproject.org/dig.html

We would be very grateful if professors would be so kind as to forward this message to the relevant university mailing lists and to the students who might be interested in participating.

If your institution is interested in taking part to the research network, please send us a message at info@apollineproject.org.
Messages to the list are archived at http://listserv.liv.ac.uk/archives/classicists.html

Website: Expeditio Pompeiana Universitatis Helsingiensis

The Expeditio Pompeiana Universitatis Helsingiensis (The Pompeii Project of the University of Helsinki) has a rather smart new website. Check it out here.

99ideas per Pompei

Came across this today in my daily search for all things Pompei related-- more about the modern city but of interest to all of us interested in sustainable tourism and regeneration of the local communities.  Could be a great opportunity to get some ideas out there or to open up a discussion forum- full details are released the 14th.

http://www.99ideas.it/site/ideas/home/idee/per-pompei.html

ven if you are not actually considering submitting an idea, I would be interested in knowing what you, as people who have worked/lived in the modern city, would think are viable ideas to "developing the attractions present in the area, innovating and improving the local economy and enhancing the tourism and culture sector, with the aim of rendering the city more attractive, welcoming and livable."

Please share your thoughts!  I already have about 99 ideas of my own!

Out soon: Oebalus 7

Out in a couple of weeks, presumably available here:

Privata Luxuria - Towards an Archaeology of Intimacy: Pompeii and Beyond




A new book is out! Privata Luxuria - Towards an Archaeology of Intimacy: Pompeii and Beyond edited by Anna Anguissola originates from an International Workshop held at the Center for Advanced Studies of the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich in 2011.

The workshop was targeted at international early-career researchers who have developed multi-disciplinary and highly innovative approaches to Roman housing. Contributors (Anna Anguissola, Antonio Calabrò, Margherita Carucci, Dora D’Auria, Miko Flohr, Riccardo Helg, Taylor Lauritsen, Chiara Maratini, Laura Nissinen and Helmut Schwaiger) come from a variety of background and traditions, adopt different methodologies and draw on diverse theoretical approaches to address privacy and related problems.

Results are now available for wider audience, published by the
Herbert Utz Verlag in their Münchner Studien zur Alten Welt series.
