The Casa del Forno (in English, House of the oven) was built modified after the earthquake in 62 BC when it became a factory with the house on the first floor. You can see the ruins of a stairs on the right of the entrance.
For long time it was the only big bakery discovered in Pompeii; but now you can find about 35 ones in the town. In the garden you can see the installations of grinding of wheat, the manufacturing and the cooking of the bread, a ponds for the water, the oven and 4 grindstones.
