In what is perhaps the best-known volcanic eruption of all time, Mount Vesuvius buried Pompeii's beautiful estates, surrounding farmland, and nearby villages under pumice and ash, preserving them for centuries. The exhibition, Last Supper in Pompeii, with its treasure trove of objects uncovered from the ash, reveals the Roman love affair with food and wine and how their production, distribution, and consumption affected every aspect of Roman life and art.
