The Art of Command. The Legacy of Augustus

Immagine: 
25/04 - 07/09/2014
Museo dell'Ara Pacis

The exhibition explores the main cultural policies and the propaganda used by Augustus in his principality and replicated through the centuries for their success. 

The art of building consensus around the person of Augustus, and at the same time to embrace the heroic destiny of Rome, was pursued with success by the Emperor becoming a model and a source of inspiration in later centuries, until the absolutist regimes of the twentieth century.
The 12 sections of the exhibition, divided by themes and different historical periods, illustrate how emperors like Charlemagne, Frederick II, Charles V and Napoleon, to name just a few, in the course of history have reinterpreted Augustus' "art of command".
On display engravings, paintings, coins, mosaics, etchings, oils, sculptures and gems coming from the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe degli Uffizi, Museo della città di Mantova - Palazzo S. Sebastiano, Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte, Musei Vaticani, Biblioteca nazionale centrale, Galleria Borghese, Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica in Palazzo Barberini, Museo nazionale Romano in Palazzo Massimo, Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia, Fondazione Dino e Ernesta Santarelli, Museo Nazionale del Palazzo di Venezia, Soprintendenza Archeologica del Lazio, Pinacoteca Nazionale di Siena, Circuito museale Genius Bononiae, Biblioteca d’Arte e di Storia di San Giorgio in Poggiale di Bologna e other civic museums of Rome.
