Caption: Preservation of a Roman villa. Firemen taking down marble statues that will be stored at an alternative location to prevent damage during preservation work on the archaeological site. This site is the Vila Augustea, the villa of Augustus (63 BC-14 AD), the first Roman emperor. The villa was discovered in the 1930s, buried beneath many layers of mud and ash from several volcanic eruptions of Mount Vesuvius. Photographed at Starza della Regina in Somma Vesuviana, near Naples, Italy.
