A YouTube video takes us into the storerooms of the National Archaeological Museum in Naples.


The Mibact YouTube channel has posted a video offering a preview look at the exhibition Sing Sing. The Body of Pompeii by Luigi Spina.

The video gives us a glimpse of the artifacts stored in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples’ storerooms in its famous attic cells, referred to in the 1970s as “Sing Sing” after the American maximum security prison in upstate New York. Oil lamps, candelabras, pottery and bronzes are the subjects of Luigi Spina ’s black-and-white shots and constitute a record of daily life in the Vesuvian cities. A film, then, to anticipate to the public the Museum’s efforts to reorganize and make usable the “Sing Sing” deposits, which, in fact, will also be visited by guided groups as soon as possible.
