Vision is an Italian publishing house that has been working in the archaeological publishing, devoting himself in particular to the reconstruction of the most important archaeological sites in Italy and the Mediterranean.

In this site, you can discover and buy our guides books for Rome, Pompeii, Ancient Sicily, Ancient Greece (Athens, Delphi, Crete and more), Middle East (Egypt, Jordan) and much more, with Past & Present images of their greatest monuments and archaeological sites.

Our guidebooks are translated in over 15 languages.

All Vision guidebooks contain a guide for the ancient city or archaeological site with several Past & Present images, curated by well-known archaeologists.

Each reconstruction is made of transparent sheet so that it overlaps the photographic image of the monument to their current status, complementing missing appearances.

Leafing through the guide, the reader may therefore overlap the reconstruction of the monument to the original photos, comparing how it was in the past and how it is today.

The reconstructions are accompanied by explanatory texts, which tell the history of the period and describe the details and features of the monument.
