Francesco Vezzoli VITA DULCIS. Paura e desiderio nell'Impero Romano

Apr 22 — Aug 27, 2023 | Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome, Italy

Jointly curated by Francesco Vezzoli – one of Italy’s most internationally acclaimed artists – and Stéphane Verger, director of the Museo Nazionale Romano, VITA DULCIS is an exhibition which strives to re-read and actualise the enduring fascination of ancient Rome through a new and surprising dialogue between contemporary art, archaeology and film. A Latinisation of Federico Fellini’s well-known film La dolce vita, the title that has been chosen introduces – and is emblematic of – the agility with which this exhibition plans to move between different ages and contexts, from Classical culture to pop.
