The National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria is a cultural observatory on the Mediterranean, where the memory, the knowledge of the traditions, the arts and knowledge that have built over the centuries the identity of the peoples who live in this area are a precious contribution to build a future of peace and human progress.
In this perspective, in collaboration with the International Center for Writers of Calabria, the MArRC promotes the conference of the historian Pasquale Amato, professor at the University for Foreigners “Dante Alighieri” and responsible for the CIS Global History Cycle, on the theme: “Europe after May 26th, always poised between Athens and Sparta”, on Tuesday, June 25th, 2019, at 5.30pm, in the Conference Room.
Speakers: the director of the MArRC, Carmelo Malacrino, and the president of Cis Loreley Rosita Borruto.
“I will confute some rooted commonplaces on European civilization, which, resisting unchanged for centuries, prevent us from recognizing how cultures, visions of the world and society are the different faces of a Europe with more souls,” explains professor Amato. “There are therefore ‘more’ Europe, not only geographical, but also cultural and political. Athens and Sparta can be considered the model of coexistence and set of contrasts in European history between identities and cultural projects so different that it is often difficult to find mediations”.
