Pompeii Plaster Casts @ Mummy Tombs

WHERE TO FIND THEM AT POMPEII

SUGGESTIONS FOR VISITING POMPEII

 

House of the Four Styles

 

Near the corner of via dell'Abbondanze and vicolo dell'Efebo

 

The House of the Four Styles is just off the Via dell'Abbondanza and seems to be a featured component of "Friendly Pompeii" exhibit, though that does not guarantee that it will always be open.

The house is notable for its four painting styles (researchers have found four different painting styles at Pompeii; some houses exhibit only one style; this one features all four--a bonanza for visitors and art historians). 

For those interested in plaster casts, two intertwined casts (not complete, by any means) are exhibited.
