Enjoying art comfortably at the museum: aperitif and “Back to the origins of the gift"
First event on Sunday 8 February at 11 am at the Buonconsiglio Castle
Enjoying art comfortably at the museum: aperitif and “Back to the origins of the gift” is the first event of the cultural project ComodaMENTEinMUSEO. Aperitivi d’arte: "Alle origini del dono", related to the exhibition “Precious gifts: images and objects from the museum's collection”, which has been on display at the Buonconsiglio Castle since December 2014.
It’s an experience to discover the museum’s archaeological collection, a selection of items belonging to five millennia of history, to let us know how the gift’s social value has changed over time.
In fact, since prehistoric times the gift has had a meaningful social value: precious gifts have ever been given to strengthen friendships, to build alliances or to show off one’s wealth; some are precious ornaments, some others are arms, war booties, or God’s gifts, or either gifts for the deceased,etc.
