Three hundred objects with unique cultural value will be displayed at Gran Guardia Palace at an exhibition not to be missed. The title of this display is “Maya. the language of beauty” and it will focus on the mysterious Mayan culture. It is a story of a civilisation that keeps fascinating us, thanks to its mathematic knowledge, to its exquisite calendars and for its artistic creations.
Furthermore, this exhibition, with more than three hundred objects coming from the major museums of Mexico, will be one of the largest and most complete ever produced at an international level.
The exhibition of Verona, curated by Antonio Aimi and Karina Romero Blanco, deals with the cultural theme of this ancient population through the words and the written works of the Mayans, using one of the most important anthropological revolutions of the last century: the translation of their language.
The display will be organized in six sections which will show the Mayan culture, the decoration of the bodies, the way of dressing and the ornaments used to indicate one’s social status, the relationships with animals, the different deities, and finally sacred entities.
Thanks to the joined forces of Italy and the most prestigious cultural Mexican institutes, the visitors of Verona have the possibility of enjoying this unrepeatable experience.
