The National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria continues its commitment to enhancing the beauty of the region’s cultural heritage through various in-depth studies. Appointment on Friday, May 17th, starting at 6.00 pm, for the “Dialogues on Beauty”: the cultural association Biesse – Bene Sociale promotes the meeting with Professor Mario Caligiuri, a scholar of Human Sciences and Intelligence, a first-class professor at the University from Calabria, the author of the book “Calabria anima mundi” (publisher Ferrari). The preface is by Vittorio Sgarbi. The cover has been specially designed by Gerardo Sacco.
After the greetings of the director of the Museum Carmelo Malacrino, they are going to speak with the author: the president of Biesse, Bruna Siviglia; the partner Patrizia Canale; the publisher Edoardo Lamberti Castronuovo.
“It is a book on the ‘great beauty’ of Calabria”, Mario Caligiuri says. “I have revived written texts for cultural events of various kinds: from the concert of the thousand young orchestras directed by Riccardo Muti to the 400th anniversary of the birth of Mattia Preti, from the restoration of the Flemish tapestry of Gerace to the extraordinary vineyards curated by the Librandi, from the exhibitions art of the Galleries of San Giovanni di Catanzaro at the last Calabrian cinema. I am very happy to present the book in the extraordinary setting of the Archaeological Museum of Reggio – the scholar adds -, which contains an exceptional collection of the beauties of Calabria together with the marvelous masterpieces of ancient Greek statuary, which are the Bronzes of Riace”. And he concludes with the words of Sgarbi in Preface: “Calabria must be deserved, before claiming that it deserves us”.
