From March 14 to June 21, 2015
For fans of the Sculpture, but also and especially for those who come to it for the first time, Palazzo Strozzi offers the opportunity to see, through the most beautiful cities of the Exhibition of 2015, true masterpieces of the ancient world from the most important archeological museums in the world.
The special, which will very much love this show, is that their contemplation will be combined with the history of their discoveries relating them to ancient contexts. For example: the shrines, where they were used as “votes”. – The Public Spaces with the function to commemorate people and events – In House as decorative elements – but also in the Cemeteries as funerary symbols.
Monumental statues of gods, heroes and athletes (well 50 masterpieces in bronze ones) will be flanked by portraits of historical figures and sculptures in marble and stone.
Example: the Viennese Apoxyomenos bronze and the marble version from the Uffizi, used for its restoration. Or the two Apollo-Kouroi one in the Louvre and the other in Pompeii.
In short, a fascinating journey in the ancient and exterminated Hellenistic empire in the time of Alexander the Great, awaits you in Florence. The exhibition will move to the J.Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and finish at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
