Visit to Pozzuoli October 2013
The temple of Mercury in Baia. Actually a bathroom. The early example of a dome, uses the strong material "pozzolana", a kind of volcanic earth.
Giovanni Pergolesi, the composer of the beautiful Stabat Mater, died at Pozzuoli in 1736 (he was 26 years old!)

The city of Pozzuoli. What is this? We simply don't know.
The active volcano Solfatara. Sulphur is in the name, so it must be smelly
