Scope note: or “incrustation”, or “structural style”, conventionally indicating one of the decorative systems of Greek origin, of Pompeian or roman painting tradition. This style imitates a mural structure built on squared ashlar-work blocks, by means of a stucco relief painted with bright colours. This type of wall consists of the following parts, from bottom to top: base, the main decorative section, frame. In Pompeii, the I style extends to the period comprised between the second quarter of the II century B.C. and the year 89 B.C. and is marked by the vertical development of the base, accentuated by the existence of jutted out pillars resting on a bottom surface.
