“In limine” exhibition

Ingresso mostra

The re-opening of the exhibition "In limine Sulla soglia del nuovo Museo Omero" continues the gradual transfer of the Museo Omero to its new premises in the Mole Vanvitelliana. Inaugurated on June 15, the show re-opened on Saturday, October 20, 2012 after a brief pause, with a change of place and several new works.

The tactile exhinition includes most of the Museum's permanent collection - about 150 works - as well as the new acquisitions by well-known modern and contemporary artists - De Chirico, Pomodoro, Consagra, Martini, Marini. The works are arranged in chronological order starting from copies from the originals of classics of Greek, Roman, Romanesque-Gothic and Renaissance masterpieces such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the Venus de Milo, the Discus Thrower by Myron and powerful creations by Michelangelo: Moses, the Pieta in St. Peter's and the Rondanini Piet√†. The journey continues with examples of Mannerism and the Neoclassical section, well represented by the "Il Movimento scolpito" collection from the Louvre. Marinetti's "Manifesto sul tattilismo" marks the transition to the abundant modern and contemporary art section with its striking original sculptures. To name but a few of the new acquisitions: "Minotauro pentito", "Manichini coloniali" and "Cavallo e palafreniere" by Giorgio De Chirico, "Rotante Massimo" by Arnaldo Pomodoro, "Giocoliere" by Marini, "San Giovannino " by Martini,"Colloquio libero" by Consagra. And also terracottas by Paolo Annibali, "l'Idea" by Bruno Ceccobelli. These are complemented by sculptures from the Museum's collection by Walter Valentini, Edgardo Mannucci, Aron Demetz, Girolamo Ciulla, Umberto Mastroianni, Pierre Carron, Felice Tagliaferri, Francesco Messina, Silvio Mastrodascio and many others.

An exhibition itinerary that unfolds in an emotional way, a place to rediscover the potential of our own feelings.

A 'MOLE' of books!
