POMPEII, Herculaneum and Stabiae come to life in a stunning new show which opened last week and runs through May 5th, 2013, at Madrid's FundaciĆ³n Canal art exhibition center.

The exhibition features wall-size projections along with murals, silverware, sculptures from the House of Menander, Pompeii's House of the Citarista and Villa del Petraro di Stabia. 

The exhibition concludes with a section dedicated to the role of the House of Bourbon, especially Charles III, in the discovery of the vesuvian sites. He was the King of Naples (who became King of Spain in 1735) to kick start the excavations ( not yet completed) that brought to light the buried city.

The exhibition was organized by the Foundation with the Landesmuseum Halle (Germany).
