In: Storia della tecnica edilizia e restauro dei monumenti: 15, 2020
The Villa dei Misteri was discovered and partially dug up at the beginning of the last century thanks to the work of a private citizen, Aurelio Item. Between 1928 and 1930, Amedeo Maiuri resumed excavations and completely unearthed it. The following essay outlines its origin and architectural transformations until the catastrophic eruption of 79 A.D. and concludes with the illustration of the project for a new access system, as part of a more articulated program for the improvement of the fruition of the Insula Occidentalis.
