Ch.21 : Map and Description of Pompei  
Visit the city

Director of excavations of 1860-1875, Giuseppe Fiorelli devised to divide Pompeii "arrondissements" or "regions" (in Latin Regio), each borough is divided into blocks (insula) bounded by four streets perpendicularities them according decumanum schema and Roman megrim;  each house (bards) of the island receives a number. He therefore divided the city of Pompei in 9 regios. This allowed a simple cataloging of goods found during the excavations and therefore an easier understanding.
