Pubblication: Sorrento e la Penisola Sorrentina

Congratulations to the editors of the journal Oebalus who have just published their first Quaderno as mentioned in a recent post.

I mention the publication again because I've just read Fabrizio Pesando's paper which should be of particular interest to Blog readers: "Appunti sull'evoluzione urbanistica di Pompei fra l'età arcaica e il III secolo a.C.: ricerche e risultati nel settore nord-occidentale della città" (Notes on Pompeii's urban evolution between the archaic period and the third century BC: research and results from the north-west area of the city).

As we are staying in Sorrento at present we popped in to the Museo Correale di Terranova in Sorrento and asked to see Mario Russo. He saw us immediately. A very helpful and enthusiastic man with a self confessed passion for the history of his home town of Sorrento. He told us about some of the Roman and other remains in the town and the eruptions of 30,000 years ago (and we of course asked about the 79AD impact on Sorrento). We then had a very interesting look around the Museo, a treasure trove for Latin inscription lovers, and were also able to see a number of old paintings of Pompeii.

We would recommend the Museo for a visit if you are in the area. We would also recommend his books for the wealth of detail they contain.
