Regio I

House of the Chaste Lovers


The name of the house derives from the motives of the paintings showing lovers  during 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 collapsed  vault. The flower-beds in the garden could be restored thanks to the holes left by the reed fencing.
