This never-before told journey through art charts the vicissitudes of the most ancient and modern character in Western literature across the centuries: the man “skilled in all ways”, Ulysses. The San Domenico Museum will host over two hundred prominent artworks, from ancient times to the 20th century, grouped in 16 sections; the exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, miniatures, mosaics, ceramics, tapestries and graphic art created by the greatest exponents of each era. The exhibition recounts the relationship between the art and myth of the figure of Ulysses, the heroic symbol of knowledge and a metaphor of mankind’s very own existence, and features a display of numerous masterpieces, from the most ancient archaeological artefacts to contemporary and futuristic installations.
