Demetra Hotel reccomends:

MOSTRI. CREATURE FANTASTICHE DELLA PAURA E DEL MITO

from 20/12/2013 to 01/06/2014

mostri-creature fantasticheFrom 20 December to 1 June 2013 the exhibition “Mostri. Creature fantastiche della paura e del mito” () will be open to the public at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme.Over one hundred archaeological finds, from Italian and foreign museums – Athens, Berlin, Basel, Vienna, Los Angeles and New York – illustrate the iconographic evolution of the Minotaur, the Griffins, the Chimeras, the Gorgons, Pegasus, the Sphinx, the Harpies, the Sirens, the Satyrs, the Centaurs, the Hydra of Lerna, Scylla and other sea monsters, from the Orient to Greece, as well as to the Etruscan, Italic and Roman world.

A reminder that Classical Art not only portrays the ideal beauty of gods and heroes, but also a series of creatures of horror, into which men have always cast the darkest aspects of themselves. The exhibition unfolds itself along a labyrinthic path, just as the ancient shape throughout which heroes had to walk in their initiatory journey before they could come “forth to rebehold the stars”.”
