The history of pompei

When we read or hear the name of this city, our mind immediately connects it to the historical events connected to it.
The eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, which not only devastated the city of Pompeii but also that of Oplontis, Ercolano and Stabia;
The erection of the Basilica of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary in Pompeii, by the hand of Bartolo Longo, with the works begun towards the end of the 16th century and concluded in 1925 with the completion of the works on the bell tower;< br/>More recent however are the visits of the last 3 Popes, present in Pompeii on the occasion of the Marian May during their pontificates.
Pompeii therefore, together with Rome, can be considered an Eternal City.
Pompeii Time was therefore born to continue that sense of eternity that you want to give to the Neapolitan city.
The Blessed Virgin of the Rosary is in fact depicted on the dial, a gift that Bartolo Longo received from Father Redeemed (his confessor).
The The history of this picture is also very particular: When Bartol o Longo received the painting, he refused it, since it was run down and did not respect the classic canons of the representation of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary; in fact, Santa Rosa was painted on the canvas and not Santa Caterina da Siena. Given the insistence of the nun who kept this canvas, Bartolo Longo accepted the painting anyway and took it with him on a cart of cattle, and when Bartolo arrived in Pompeii, the dismay that had initially seized him also seized all the others present; when he removed the blanket, the painting was shown. They all agreed that the painting could not be exhibited for fear of interdict, before even partial restoration.
The successful restoration work led to the change of Santa Rosa with the classic Santa Caterina di Siena, and the adornment of the picture with Precious Stones, later removed to avoid holes in the canvas. The painting was crowned on April 23, 1965 by Pope Paul VI.
Another characteristic of the clock is the presence of stones on the bezel. What's new about the presence of Crystals on a Watch Case? Their location! In fact, it can be noted that every ten crystals of about 1.5 mm of the same color alternate with a larger crystal (about 2.5 mm) of a different color. This alternation of Crystals forms a Rosary with five Mysteries, an object widely used in Christian worship since the Middle Ages, as a form of solemn prayer.
Time in Pompeii therefore did not stop at 79 AD. C.. Time in Pompeii still ticks its hands today.
Pompeii Time.
Pompeii Eeternum.
