Rome Exhibition Ovid Loves Myths And Other Stories

Dates: 17.10.18 - 20.01.19. Address: Scuderie del Quirinale, Via Ventiquattro Maggio 16, 00186 Rome, Italy.

Publius Ovidius Naso (43 BC – 17/18 AD), known as Ovid in the English-speaking world, was a Roman poet who lived during the reign of Augustus. He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace, with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. Among the authors of Ancient Rome, Ovid is undoubtedly one of the most loved; for two thousand years his verses, which speak to us of love or which narrate the adventurous stories of the gods, give us back the image of a living, passionate world, sensitive to beauty in all its forms. The Scuderie del Quirinale in the centre of Rome is celebrating his life and works by hosting a new exhibition entitled 'Ovid. Loves, Myths And Other Stories' (Italian: Ovidio. Amori, Miti E Altre Storie) until the 20th January 2019. It includes over 200 works including frescoes and ancient sculptures, precious medieval manuscripts and paintings of modern age will accompany the story of the poet's life and the themes at the centre of his writings: love, seduction and the relationship of power and myth.
