The timeless myth of Phidias

A compelling journey into the life, career and historical-cultural climate in which Phidias, the great sculptor of classical Greece, worked, through a vast and precious selection of over 100 works - including archaeological finds, Greek originals and Roman replicas, paintings, manuscripts , drawings, some exhibited for the first time. He was the protagonist of Periclean Athens. His name is known to the world for the creation of works such as the Parthenon and its sculptural decorations, which today can be admired at the British Museum in London. His creative genius has left an indelible mark on the collective imagination and continues to be a source of inspiration for contemporaries. A very important figure, almost legendary, although surrounded by an aura of mystery. Many details of his life are in fact little known and knowledge of his work is based mainly on replicas and literary sources.
