This past weekend, Umbra students from HSRC 330: Roman Civilization and Daily Life trekked through the ancient, and once buried, cities of Pompei, Herculaneum and the Oplontis Villa. Professor Giampiero Bevagna took his students through family homes, stores, arenas, public bath houses, and more. As a special treat, students spent an afternoon along the breathtaking Italian coast in Almafi, laying on the beach while trying their famous lemon sorbet. The fun, informative class field trip wrapped up in Naples at the National Archaeological Museum to see the excavated remains of Pompei. The museum has has the world’s largest collection which included pottery, sculptures, frescoes, and many other artifacts. No trip to Naples would have be complete though without a classic Neapolitan pizza and pastries which received rave reviews by the students before heading home to Perugia.
