Pompei, located nearby Naples, in the south of Italy, was a Greek colony since the VII century B.C., later captured by Etruscans and finally by Romans; it was so named from Gens Pompeia, a Roman family which lived there.
Today, it is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The "Pompei Red" colour is well represented in the large pearly resin bands which feature the Gens Pompeia collection.
