The Oplontis Project

The Oplontis Project’s mission is to conduct a multidisciplinary and systematic study of Villa A (Villa di Poppaea) at Oplontis (Torre Annunziata, Italy). Under the direction of John R. Clarke and Michael L. Thomas of the University of Texas at Austin, and in collaboration with the Soprintendenza Archeologica di Pompei, an international team of scholars will partner to produce the definitive monograph on the villa. This publication, in both digital and print formats, will be accompanied by a fully navigable 3-D model and a comprehensive database.
