New Domus re-emerges at Pompeii

First Pompeian style 'vintage' home was rich with frescoes

(ANSA) - Rome, August 3 - Excavations at the Pompeii archaeological site have uncovered a new ancient Roman treasure - a home that has been baptised Domus 'Vintage'.
    The domus on the so-called street of balconies was rich in frescoes.
    "The domus had 'vintage' decoration in the first Pompeian style," Pompeii Director Massimo Osanna said as ANSA got a sneak preview.
    "The owner must have been wealthy and cultured, aware of the value of painting".
