New Getty Villa exhibit: The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection

I looked back into the Villa's central courtyard. Among brightlit Pompeian pillars, we happy Angelini disported ourselves over good wine, food and music. As as blissed, one imagines, as any gathering of the original Pompeiians in the original villa might have been on a similar kindly summer night, 1,933 years ago, just before their friendly old mountain went nuclear.
