Once upon a time... the cyclops Polyphemus and other stories
Dear Aeneas, Dear Dido
While taking in the entire exhibition route, the guided tour will focus on those subjects represented in the decorations of the affluent residences of Pompeii, and in particular on the main characters in the legends. Clients and painters shared the same cultural climate as literati and poets, in whose works the ancient myths were explored in great depth. The aim is to capture youngsters’ attention through this link: some of the heroines depicted on the walls of Pompeii will come to life by means of the words in their imaginary letters to their loved ones, based on Ovid’s Heroides.
The activities will then continue in class: with the help of specially designed sheets and examples, as part of a letter-writing workshop, girls and boys can bring other mythical figures to life. The content they come up with can then be showcased in a dedicated space on the exhibition website.
For those preparing to study the Latin authors, material can be provided to expand on the connections between images and texts.
Domus. A dream house
What did it mean in practical terms to decorate a domus? Which materials were used when preparing the walls, and which tools and techniques were deployed to create the paintings? How was the painters’ work organised? Which pictorial subjects and decorative schemes were favoured by rich clients?
The workshop will allow youngsters to discover all this and more besides, thanks to a role-playing game that will see them become clients, decorators, apprentice painters, assistants and masters all involved in decorating a room within the domus, made to look like an actual building site!
The activity will be preceded by an introduction during which a typical aristocratic townhouse will be analysed using the scale model of a Pompeiian domus, highlighting the various spaces that comprise it and their intended use. The final part of the workshop will be carried out in the exhibition space, where the boys and girls will discover the original instruments and will be helped to recognise the various pictorial themes.
