Ercolano is a city of ancient origins, the testimonies of the first settlements date back to 1243 a.C. In 89 a.C. it became a Roman colony but the age of the empire lasted about two centuries because the terrible eruption of Vesuvius hit the area in 79 d.C. covering the city under a lava blanket. In the eighteenth century, during the Bourbon empire, the first excavation works were started which and, thanks to the first discoveries, contributed to the birth of the Neoclassical movement. It is necessary to wait until 1927 for the area of the archaeological park to be almost totally freed to be delivered to the present day during which programmatic maintenance works keeps intact the beauty of the site. The School of Restoration, in close contact with the archaeological site, must be imagined as the place where to form the new generations of restorers; the students will make the nearby ancient park the place where to apply the theoretical dictates learned. The school, in addition to being an educational center and an important element of urban reactivation, will become a contemporary sign capable of understanding in the relationship with the ancient an interesting bridge between the ages.
