Abstract

The paper presents the preliminary results of the integrated geophysical survey conducted in the hortus of the Praedia Iuliae Felicis (Pompeii, II, 4). The project aims to reconstruct the original arrangement of this vast open garden, belonging to one of Pompeii’s largest and most discussed buildings. Together with archaeological consideration, the information collected during the survey guided the location of three trenches, opened in the summer of 2019. Logistic constraints prevented from opening the three trenches in the points deemed most interesting according to the geophysical survey. Nonetheless, the multiparametric approach adopted for the survey provided useful data to the purposes of archaeological interpretation.
