The show

A suggestive journey through history to discover a great ancient civilization: if the debate on the protection of cultural assets in crisis areas is as timely as ever, the exhibition "Assyrians in the shadow of Vesuvius", scheduled at MANN from 3 July to next September 16th, the spotlight is symbolically on the region of Assyria, which represented the territorial band of the upper Tigris at the northern part of today's Iraq.

On that strip of land, from the nineteenth century onwards, the research of intellectuals and antiquarians concentrated, laying the foundations for the establishment of a modern koinè of international scholars: this synergistic model appears to be replicated, in a suggestive way, by the network of collaborations which led to the realization of the exhibition "The Assyrians in the shadow of Vesuvius".

The scientific project, promoted by the MANN and the University of Naples "L'Orientale", has selected over forty-five finds, coming, among others, from the British Museum, Ashmolean Museum, Vatican Museums, Barracco Museum, Civic Museums of Como and the Royal Museums of Turin: fulcrum of the staging, the nineteenth-century casts, belonging to the MANN collections and not exposed for many years.
