Pompeii: Unearthing a Still Life in Regio IX

Discovering ancient culinary traditions in the heart of Pompeii! πŸ•πŸ…πŸ§€ In the recent excavations of Regio IX, a fascinating still life fresco emerged, shedding light on the roots of one of the world’s most beloved dishes: pizza! 🌿🍽️✨

Though it may resemble a pizza at first glance, this 2000-year-old Pompeian painting is missing some iconic ingredients like tomatoes and mozzarella. πŸ…πŸ§€ However, a meticulous iconographic analysis suggests that what graced the walls of an ancient Pompeian house could be a distant ancestor of our modern favorite. No wonder it earned the prestigious status of a World Heritage element in 2017, recognized as the “traditional art of the Neapolitan pizza chef.” πŸŒπŸŽ‰

According to the archaeologists at the Archaeological Park of Pompeii, the fresco showcases a fascinating scene. Beside a gleaming wine cup on a silver tray, lies a delectable flat focaccia acting as a base for an assortment of fruits, including pomegranates and possibly dates. πŸ‡πŸ₯πŸ― Vibrant yellow and ochre dots hint at the presence of spices or even a pesto-like sauce (known as “moretum” in Latin) that adds a tantalizing flavor to the dish. πŸŒΏπŸŒΆοΈπŸƒ

And that’s not all! The tray also holds a delightful combination of dried fruits and a garland of golden strawberry trees, beautifully complementing the dates and pomegranates. πŸ“πŸŒ³βœ¨

As we unravel the culinary wonders of ancient Pompeii, let’s celebrate the heritage that connects us across millennia. πŸΊπŸ” Join us in appreciating the rich history of our beloved dishes and the incredible artistry of those who came before us. 🍽️🎨#PompeiiExcavations#CulinaryHeritage#AncientFlavors#PizzaAncestors#WorldHeritage#FoodHistory#pompei#guidedtours#UnforgettableJourney
