Gabriel Zuchtriegel new manager of the Archaeological Park of Pompeii
12 April 2021
Gabriel Zuchtriegel will replace Massimo Osanna as the new director of the Pompeii Archaeological Park following the designation of the Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini. Zuchtriegel has been leading the Paestum Archaeological Park since 2015. In Pompeii he has already worked in the team of the former director Massimo Osanna, currently general director of the Mibact Museums. Zuchtriegel graduated in Classical Archeology, Prehistory and Greek Philology from the Humboldt-Universität in Berlin and then received his PhD in Classical Archeology from the University of Bonn. Having dissipated the first disagreements and the first criticisms due to the nationality of the new director, he was granted full confidence by the minister of culture thanks to his excellent intervention in the management of the archaeological excavations of Paestum and the countless results obtained.
