Monsters: Fantastic Creatures of Fear and Myth
ROME, ITALY  •  Museo Nazionale Romano  •  20 December 2013 - 1 June 2014
 
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".

The persistence of mythological figures in modern and contemporary culture is illustrated by the paintings on canvas Crete (by Alberto Savino), Medusa (by an anonymous Flemish painter of the first half of the 17th century), Perseus freeing Andromeda (by Cavalier d' Arpino).
