of the Chaste Lovers
The name of the house derives from the motives of the
paintings showing loversduring a feast. This is a typical “shop-house” with the
bakery on facing the street and internal living quarters. The large
bakery is equipped with oven with millstones.
The skeletons of the mules used for the loads of grain
were found in one of the stables which opened on the southern alley. The
house has elegant paintings. Decoration works were still in progress in
one of the halls on the day of the eruption. Thus, there are completed
parts and portions still being prepared with graffiti and preparatory
drawings (sinópie).Little cups containing the colors, a small stove and a compass
were found under the collapsedvault.
The flower-beds in the garden could be restored thanks to the holes left
by the reed fencing.
