Description

This volume shows us, with extreme clarity and appreciable simplicity, how many countless stories can arise around small objects, lamps, which for centuries have been the main "lighting bodies" of houses and spaces, as we would say with a current lexicon. In a few centimeters of dimensions (approximately 10-11 cm for the longitudinal axis, 8 cm for the transverse one and 34 cm in height) extraordinary information and stories are contained: on production, use and decoration techniques, on the typologies, on the glossary they are connected, on the collecting that arose and which also fueled public collections, on the iconographic motifs, in this case linked to the world of gladiature, so important and mythical for Roman culture. Lucerne, gladiatorial games, ferocious beasts, theatrical shows, games, their political/celebratory use (in the wake of the famous saying panem et circenses) are presented in this catalog thanks to the work of experts and high school students who have been involved in courses school-work alternation training courses.
