Troy: the end of the city, the birth of the myth

After the great success obtained with "Letters from Pompeii", the collaboration between Comacchio and the National Archaeological Museum of Naples is renewed: a new temporary exhibition, inspired by the Iliad - ancient and famous work of Homer - lands on March 16th at Palazzo Bellini.

The Homeric poem tells of a clash that involved the peoples of the Mediterranean and Asia for more than 10 years, we could almost say that it was the first "world war" in history. Celebrated by the words of Homer, the myths and characters of the Trojan war represent the artistic and cultural bases on which European culture is based and have been objects of study and inspiration for numerous artists and scholars from antiquity to the present day.

In this way, the Comacchio summer program is enriched, which with this free-of-charge exhibition invites tourists to discover the cultural revolts of the territory and to touch the artistic value of the works and buildings that embellish the historic city center and make from completion to the seaside offer of excellence that the coastal territory offers.
