The sets were composed of four complexes on two plates: Domus, Tabernae, Ludus and Thermae;
The Domus could be transformed into four different houses, by the escamoteo of 20 pillared columns of 4 meters of height each, with an autogyro mechanism implanted in the own wall. The pavements had to solve the slip of the Dolly and the texture of the mosaic, for which they were made imprints that obtained repeated motifs with an extraordinary quality. The walls were decorated with grechas, valances and polychromes extracted from documentation of Domus Pompeyanas.
For the Tabernae wood was used coming from demolition in its natural aspect in the construction of mezzanines, also for the manufacture of doors, windows and carpentries wood of the same origin was used.
The Thermae had a clean and fully heated swimming pool.
The Ludus was made entirely in cement mortar and wood from demolition.
All hardware was manufactured exclusively for the series.
