Making use of the newly introduced technique of color lithography, they documented the buildings, frescos, statues, as well as its most ordinary everyday objects, of the city buried in just 24 hours by the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius and preserved for over 1,600 years under a mantle of volcanic ash. The Niccolinis' goal was to illustrate all aspects of life in the antique city. Their publication, Le case ed i monumenti di Pompei (The Houses and Monuments of Pompeii), which was issued in installments between 1854 and 1896 in Naples, presented over 400 color plates providing not only views, maps, and ground plans of the city and its public buildings, but also offered unprecedented access to Pompeii's private residences. They revealed the astonishing painted wall decorations that adorned these long-buried abodes, their intricate works of art, and the practical utensils of everyday use, conjuring up a vivid picture of each house as a real, domestic space. In addition, animated representations visualized daily life in Pompeii s workshops, taverns, and shops, on its public squares, and in its temples, theaters, and baths."@en ;
