File:Pompeii - Battle at the Amphitheatre - MAN.jpg


Italiano: Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli (inv. nr. 112222). Da Pompeii, Casa della Rissa nell'Anfiteatro (I, 3, 23) - L'affresco, famosissimo, è uno dei pochi che mostra un'ambientazione ed un episodio realistici. E' ritratto fedelmente l'anfiteatro di Pompei, con le mura della città alle sue spalle e la grande palestra con piscina centrale alla sua destra. L'episodio ritratto è quello della rissa scoppiata fra Pompeiani e Nucerini nell'anno 59 d.C. in cui ci furono numerosi morti, tanto da indurre il Senato Romano a proibire nell'anfiteatro di Pompei l'esecuzione dei giochi gladiatorii per ben dieci anni. L'episodio viene narrato dallo storico Tacito (Annali, XIV, 17).

Wikipedia for Schools was collected by SOS Childrens Villages. SOS Childrens Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. Have you thought about sponsoring a child?
