THE FRUIT­FUL MEET­ING OF CUL­TURES

Italia Luxury - - Delight In The Great Beauty | Save The Date -

‘Pom­peii and the Greeks’ is an ex­hi­bi­tion bear­ing wit­ness to the many cul­tures that have left their mark on the an­cient city of Pom­peii from its foun­da­tion to its de­struc­tion when Ve­su­vius erupted in AD 79. This ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the strat­i­fi­ca­tion and some­times con­tra­dic­tory re­la­tion­ships be­tween the cul­tures of the an­cient Italic peo­ples, Etr­uscans, Greeks and Ro­mans that criss­crossed its his­tory; a jour­ney to dis­cover the many souls of an an­cient city and its mul­ti­ple iden­ti­ties. The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures 600 ar­ti­facts, in­clud­ing ceram­ics, or­na­ments, weapons, ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments and sculp­tures, on loan from ma­jor na­tional and Euro­pean mu­se­ums. 12 April - 27 Novem­ber Pom­peii and the Greeks Palestra Grande, Pom­peii (Naples) - www.pom­pei­isites.org
