The archaeological classicism and the contemporaneity of Mitoraj’s art – one
never overwhelming the other – establish a harmonious, dialectic bond that emphasise and enhance the historical solemnity of the excavations as much as the delicate figures of the master sculptor.

About

Thirty monumental bronze sculptures will be placed in diverse sections of the archaeological site  – from the Sanctuary of Venus to the Forum, from the via dell’Abbondanza to the Stabian Baths and up to the Quadriporticus of the Theatres. The massive and elegantly sculpted figures, inspired from the classic iconology of myths and legends, will co-habit alongside the architecture of ancient Pompeii – Daedalus and the Sanctuary of Venus, the Centaur and the Forum, the Centurion at the Stabian baths and Ikaro alato at the triangular Forum. This grandiose project is expected to inject new lifeblood into one of the most important archaeological areas in the world.
