  • The Sannitica house dates back to the 2nd century BC, which is why it is one of the oldest houses in Herculaneum; the eruption of the year 79 A.D. did not spare it, covering it with a layer of pyroclastic residues just like the rest of the city. Several features that distinguish the house, starting with the entrance, frescoed to want to recreate the appearance of marble, and then move to the top of the environment, which recreates a "fake" close-up. Also particularly important is the environment called the "cubicolo", painted in a green color, which offers a small fresco in the center of a wall, representing the rat of Europa (female figure of Greek mythology, queen of Crete, who was kidnapped by Jupiter, represented in the form of a bull). Some of the rooms have beautiful mosaic floors that are well preserved.
