Rome, May 17 - Digs at a previously unexcavated area
of Pompeii have uncovered a spectacular alley with a series of
buildings with big balconies that the Mount Vesuvius lava shower
the ancient Roman city underwent in AD 79 left largely intact,
the archaeological site's Director Massimo Osanna told ANSA on
Thursday.
The buildings have the distinctive Pompeii red and other hues
in their true colours as the ancient inhabitants of the city
would have seen them.
Archaeologists even found amphora in the corners of the
balconies that had left out to dry in the sun.
"It's something that is truly rare for Pompeii," Osanna told
ANSA.
He said that the balconies will be restored and become part
of a new tour route at the site.
