A Lightning Spark for Pompeian Visitors
by Vittorio Macchioro
Publisher: Mary E. Raiola 1908
Number of pages: 84
The author aimed at giving to those who visit Pompei some directing ideas that may be for them a kind of lightning spark, so that they may penetrate into the very heart of the Roman civilization, and look at it and consider it not like a dead thing which may be of interest to them but does not require a special spiritual valuation, but like a live matter whose wide influence and echo, without even our knowing it, affect deeply the conscience of the modem man.
