“COSTRUIRE PER GLI DEI"

“Costruire per gli dèi” is an exhibition, conceived and created to involve the public of all ages, which aims to introduce young and old the techniques and the processes used by the ancients in order to erect perfect architectures, such as the majestic temples of Agrigento, designed to last over 2500 years. 

Ancient cranes 1:1 faithfully reconstructed, machines used to transport the stones, the columns and the scaffoldings to construct the site, displayed along the main route of the Archaeological Park, aim to induce the visitors of all ages to meditate on the past and the present of these places.

The exhibition is accessible to children too, through drawings and brief explanations in Italian and English positioned at their height. 

Designed for children – but not only – is the publication linked to the exhibition curated by Alessandro Carlino and produced by MondoMostre. The book is available in Italian and English in the bookshops of the Archaeological Park from 30 July 2020. You can read an extract of the book through the link below.
