Unique Explosion Event by Artist Cai Guo-Qiang

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

An explosion of gunpowder and color smoke in Pompeii’s Amphitheatre to relive the tragic and, at the same time, vital dynamics of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, in a timeless poetic journey telling the story of the destruction and rebirth of Pompeii. It will be a unique explosion event by artist Cai Guo-Qiang, who will execute his Explosion Studio in the arena of the Amphitheatre at 1 PM on February 21st. It will be an artistic explosion whose different phases will be a metaphor of not only the tragedy that devastated Pompeii but also its fortunate discovery, bringing to light exceptional historical moments and archaeological finds.
