Otium Ludens: Stabiae, cuore dell’ Impero Romano

On 14th March, 170 finds from eight Stabian villas go on display at the Museo Archeologico of Ravenna as part of the ‘Otium Ludens’ exhibition (which was voted one of the best exhibitions of 2008 by The Times). The exhibition has already been seen at the Hermitage in St Petersburg and at the Hong Kong Museum of Art; Ravenna will be the only Italian stop on its itinerary. It will eventually make its way to the US and Australia. You can read more about the exhibition here. Here are two of the frescos on display (source):

P.S. This one is for you, Rick Jones!
