The University of Missouri has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Director General of the Archaeological Park, Prof. Massimo Osanna, to resume the analysis of the Sanctuary and Temple of Venus at Pompeii. This important temple complex was dedicated to the tutelary goddess of Pompeii. Activities on site will include a new 3D survey of the temple and ancillary structures, and targeted excavations to continue the investigation of the Pre-Roman phases, which Dr. Marcello Mogetta will coordinate in collaboration with Dr. Ilaria Battiloro of Mount Allison University (Canada).
