Campania is now part of the list of Italian regions to be mapped for IVIPRO, together with Lazio, Piedmont, Apulia, Sardinia, Sicily, Aosta Valley, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Lombardy, Tuscany and Trentino.
The mapping process will be fostered by a collaboration with the local Film Commission. In the picture, The Last Day of Pompeii by Karl Briullov (1830-1833). “Excavated Pompeii – a perfectly preserved city – makes a strong impression on its visitors. The influence of the city and the related disaster did not escape Karl Briullov either, who visited Pompeii in 1827. […] Briullov took his time to research the details of the catastrophe. He made many sketches of the architecture of Pompeii, which allowed him to transfer in detail the city onto the canvas” (todiscoverrussia.com)
