Vedi: Maiuri A., 1970. Pompeii. Roma: Istituto poligrafico dello Stato, p. 102.

 

Secondo il sito web PAP, L’Antiquarium di Pompei fu realizzato da Giuseppe Fiorelli tra il 1873 e il 1874 negli spazi sottostanti la terrazza del Tempio di Venere, con affaccio su Porta Marina. Fu sede espositiva di una selezione di reperti provenienti da Pompei ed esemplificativi della vita quotidiana dell’antica città, oltre che dei calchi delle vittime dell’eruzione.

 

Nel 1926 venne ampliato da Amedeo Maiuri, che oltre ad aggiungere grandi mappe con gli sviluppi aggiornati degli scavi dal 1748 in poi e inserire nuovi reperti provenienti dalla Villa Pisanella di Boscoreale nonché dai più recenti scavi di via dell’Abbondanza, impostò un percorso che guidava il visitatore nella storia di Pompei dalle origini fino all’eruzione. 

 

L’edificio fu poi gravemente danneggiato dalle bombe della II guerra mondiale nel settembre 1943 e grazie all’intervento di restauro del Maiuri, il 13 giugno del 1948 riaprì alla fruizione dei visitatori in occasione della celebrazione del 2° centenario degli scavi di Pompei. Nuovamente danneggiato, stavolta dal terremoto del 1980, da allora è rimasto chiuso al pubblico.

 

Nel 2010 è stato interessato da una ristrutturazione generale che restituisce alla fruizione del pubblico un edificio restaurato con interventi di allestimento integratii con una più completa offerta di conoscenza per il visitatore, multimediale e museale, e che, grazie alla realizzazione di un ascensore che dalla quota della Villa Imperiale conduce a quella di copertura dell’Antiquarium, in corrispondenza del Tempio di Venere, permette l’accesso facilitato per tutti i visitatori all’area archeologica di Pompei.

 

E’ stato riaperto al pubblico nella sua nuova veste di visitor center e spazio museale nell’aprile del 2016.

Secondo Garcia y Garcia, il 25 febbraio 1861 Fiorelli ha proposto l'istituzione di un museo a Pompei. Per la finanziaria o ragioni di disponibilità della terra il grande disegno originale non è stato proceduto. 

 

Nel giornale manoscritto alla data del 17 marzo 1863 mostra Fiorelli era ormai adattato un lungo rettilineo grande parte cripta era una struttura antica scoperta sotto la terrazza del Tempio di Venere. Ingresso era da una porta sotto l'arco di Porta Marina. Questo manoscritto è datato dopo la requisizione e distruzione del casino Minervini, che per anni aveva in parte le stanze antiche come cellai. Garcia y Garcia suggerisce che questo è “meglio sarebbe chiamarlo magazzino”. 

 

La storia di questo primo Museo Pompeiano è quasi avvolta nel mistero, e della sua prima istituzione, come del suo evolversi, non abbiamo quasi nessun tipo di documentazione. 

Nel 1873 Fiorelli (Gli Scavi di Pompei...) non ne aveva fatto cenno.

Nel 1875 Fiorelli (Descrizione...) descrivendo la Porta Marina e la cripta (nell'antichità un deposito per gli oggetti provenienti dal mare), parla già  del Museo Pompeiano, ma senza nessun’altra notizia.

Nel 1877 Fiorelli (Guida) descrive semplicemente "si ritorna alla Porta della Marina dove potrà osservare il Museo Pompeiano". Elenca anche oltre 1,600 articoli trovati nel Museo.

Possiamo pertanto presumere la sua istituzione tra gli anni 1873-4.

According to Maiuri the Antiquarium was founded in 1861.

See Maiuri A., 1970. Pompeii. Roma: Istituto poligrafico dello Stato, p. 102.

 

According to the PAP web site, The Antiquarium of Pompeii was realised by Giuseppe Fiorelli between 1873 and 1874 in the areas under the terrace of the Temple of Venus, facing Porta Marina. It was the exhibition site of a selection of finds hailing from Pompeii, which served as an example of the daily life in the ancient city, as well as exhibiting casts of the eruption victims.

 

In 1926, it was expanded by Amedeo Maiuri, who not only added large maps showing updated developments of the excavations from 1748 onwards, but also inserted new finds from Villa Pisanella of Boscoreale as well as from the most recent excavations in Via dell’Abbondanza, and set up a route that guided the visitors through Pompeii’s history, from its origins to the eruption.

 

The building was then seriously damaged by bombs during World War II, in September 1943. However, thanks to Maiuri’s renovation intervention, it was reopened to visitors on the two hundredth anniversary of Pompeii’s excavations, on 13th June 1948. It was damaged again, this time by an earthquake in 1980, and it had been closed to the public since then.

 

However, after a general renovation in 2010, the restored building was again open for public use with work on integrated outfitting offering a more complete multimedia and museum-like experience to the visitors. This renovation grants all visitors easier access to the archaeological area of Pompeii thanks to the installation of an elevator that leads from the level of Villa Imperiale to the height of the Antiquarium covering, in line with the Temple of Venus. It was reopened to the public as visitor centre and museum area in April 2016.

See PAP web site

 

According to Garcia y Garcia, on the 25th February 1861 Fiorelli proposed the institution of a Museum at Pompeii. For financial or land availability reasons the original grand design was not proceeded with.

 

A manuscript dated 17th March 1863 shows Fiorelli had by then adapted a long straight big crypt, part of which was an antique structure discovered below the terrace of the Temple of Venus. It was entered by a door under the arch of the Porta Marina. This manuscript is dated after the requisition and demolition of the Casino Minervini, which for years had used the antique crypt as a storage cellar. Garcia y Garcia suggests this was more a store than a museum.

 

The history of this museum is somewhat shrouded in mystery and lack of documented detail.

In 1873 Fiorelli (Gli Scavi di Pompei…) does not mention the Museo at all.

In 1875 Fiorelli (Descrizione…) describes the crypt (in antiquity a deposit for items coming by sea) and mentions the Museo but gives no further details.

In 1877 Fiorelli (Guida) simply describes “returning to the Porta Marina where you will observe the Museo Pompeiano”. He also lists over 1600 items found in the Museo.

All these may suggest a Museum further developed in 1873-4, possibly opened in 1875.
