01.08.2012 - 31.10.2012
From August 1 to October 31, 2012, "Mille e una... Archeologia" (“A Thousand and One… Archaeology!”) the archaeological areas and museums (protected under the Regional Board for the Archaeological Patrimony of Salerno, Avellino, Benevento and Caserta) are open during nocturnal hours to the public.
An opportunity to see and learn about the exceptional archaeological zones of ancient Campania becomes even more enchanting under the night sky.
At Paestum, Velia, Minori and Santa Maria di Capua Vetere, the calendar foresees various events, including guided visits, concerts, theatre productions, temporary exhibits, children’s activities, tastings and topical conferences. Admire the temples of Paestum, retrace the history of the Etruscans of Pontecagnano, walk amongst the ruins of the ancient city of Velia, live the emotions of the evocative Roman Theatre of Benevento, idle about with the ancient patricians of Minori in the Roman Villa (with multimedia installations by Studio Azzurro), feel the excitement of a visit to the amphitheatre of Santa Maria di Capua Vetere – these are just some of the experiences in which the public can partake from summer to autumn in Campania!
