NICCOLINI: HOUSES AND MONUMENTS OF POMPEII. Translation. Valentin Kockel. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2016. 632 pp. 40 x 30 cm. ISBN 9783836556873 In English.
Publisher's description: Rising from the ashes: A meticulous record of the city that lay buried for 1,600 years. First published by Fausto and Felice Niccolini between 1854 and 1896 in Naples, Le case ed i monumenti di Pompei: disegnati e descritti aimed to illustrate all aspects of life in the ancient city buried in just 24 hours by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius and preserved under ash for over 1,600 years. Both the Fausto brothers had a keen sensibility for this archaeological marvel. Before engaging in their editorial venture, Fausto worked under his father, the well-known architect Antonio Niccolini, while Felice worked in the Museo Nazionale di Napoli. The pair went to great effort to represent the context of each found object, so that readers could appreciate each building, monument, and object not just as a wonder for scholarly analysis but as a vivid part of daily experience in the Roman Empire, from busy streets to intimate domestic spaces.
