This is the first of three volumes to be produced by the Oplontis Project (http://www.oplontisproject.org), which documents the famous Villa A at Torre Annunziata and its gardens together with the Oplontine built and geological environment. Volume 2 will incorporate the wall paintings, molded stuccoes, pavements, and sculptures of Villa A as well as social themes (slaves, graffiti) and other topics; volume 3 will present the villa's architecture of more than ninety rooms as well as the Oplontis Project's excavations and materials from 2006 to the present. The lesser-known Villa B, a mixed-use commercial, warehouse, and residential building nearby, will also be presented.
