EXHIBITION Colori degli Etruschi
Video stories as part of the exhibition Colori degli Etruschi, an extraordinary selection of figured wall slabs and moulded architectural decorations in polychrome terracotta from the area of Cerveteri (the ancient city of Caere), some of which have never been seen before.
Daniele Federico Maras, Archaeological Manager at the Soprintendenza Archeologia Belle Arti Paesaggio Etruria Meridionale, illustrates one of the painted panels on show from Cerveteri. A work from the 6th century B.C., of great importance, which recounts the encounter between the young Tiresia and a 'mysterious' female figure, who is portrayed exceptionally nude.
Leonardo Bochicchio, Archaeological Officer at the Soprintendenza Archeologia Belle Arti Paesaggio Etruria Meridionale and one of the organisers of the exhibition, tells us about a series of panels dedicated to the exploits of the Greek hero Eracle.
Daniele Maras, Archaeology Manager at the Soprintendenza Archeologia Belle Arti Paesaggio Etruria Meridionale and one of the organisers of the exhibition, talks about a pottery stone with a special inscription.
Daniele Maras, Archaeological Manager at the Soprintendenza Archeologia Belle Arti Paesaggio Etruria Meridionale and one of the organisers of the exhibition, explains what the archaeologists discovered during their study and the recomposition of the materials on display in the exhibition. In what form were the panels made? The work was carried out by Etruscan modellers, painters and phonemakers... but how were the panels mounted in their place of destination?
Leonardo Bochicchio, archaeological manager and one of the organisers of the exhibition, explains how to understand every detail of the extraordinary representations on display.
The rich Etruscan dwellings of ancient Caere (today's Cerveteri), as well as the sanctuaries, hosted festive and colourful dances, accompanied by music, during banquets and the most solemn festivities dedicated to the gods. The memory of this custom remains in the images painted on a series of terracotta panels on display in the exhibition on the ground floor of the Centrale Montemartini.
Daniele Maras, Archaeological Manager, one of the curators of the exhibition, tells us about a group of painted panels found in 1940 in the area called " Campetti", on the border of the modern city of Cerveteri. The scenes painted on the stone panels refer to the story of Perseus and Medusa, but the Etruscan artist who made them added some unusual details that depart from the traditional version of the Greek myth...
E’ davvero sorprendente che degli elementi fragilissimi come le conchiglie si siano conservate fino ad oggi in questo pannello di mosaico.
