On May 29, 2019 the International Hermitage Friends’ Club closed the 2018/2019 season with the meeting dedicated to the exhibition Gods, Men, Heroes. From the Museo Archeologico Nationale di Napoli and the Parco Archeologico di Pompei.

The evening opened with welcoming words from the Head of the International Hermitage Friends' Club Svetlana Philippova in the Pergamon Hall of the Small Hermitage. Following the greeting, the exhibition curator Andrey Kuznetsov introduced to the Friends the unique exhibition devoted to the outstanding archaeological discovery of the world-famous Ancient Roman settlements of Pompeii and Herculaneum that perished in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the 1st century AD.

The exhibition enjoyed great success among the guests of the evening, who were happy to use this opportunity and see the unique objects as well as to ask their questions to the Hermitage curators of the Educational Department during the tour of the exhibition.
