Join art historian and chef Nancy DeLucia Real on a tour of the exhibition, Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World (on view July 28-November 1, 2015). You will view bronze sculptures of the Hellenistic period (dating from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. to the foundation of the Roman Empire in A.D. 31). Interactive discussion will ensue regarding how Roman aristocrats collected, copied and proudly showcased these masterpieces at their villas. Then, at the Italian Cultural Institute, you will prepare and enjoy foods from an ancient convivium or banquet – and chat about a Roman host’s collection of bronzes!
