Haecest Italia Diis Sacra is the Archaeological Installation realised in March 2017, displaying objects and reproductions of some artefacts coming from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. There are displayed some original objects which were preserved in the deposits and can now be admired.
Haecest Italia Diis Sacra – Archaeological Installation at the Airport
The aim of this project for the International Airport of Naples was to promote the great archaeological heritage of Campania and to show tourists leaving from Naples what are the beauties preserved in the Archaeological Museum. In the hall of the airport there is a copy of one of the most famous bronze sculptures of the city, the Nike, while after the security controls there is the original statue of Triptolemus. In the boarding area, instead, there is an original statue representing Urania. The God Hermes, then, welcomes the passengers arriving in Naples with a copy of the original statue in bronze.
Fonderia Nolana curated the entire artistic installation at the airport of Naples. The leitmotif of the works selected for the exhibition is flight: all the works indeed represent winged deities who dominate the sky. In Capodichino there are also displayed copies of some findings coming from Pompeian excavations, including the mosaics depicting musicians and theatre performers. This project will be useful to promote the image of the city for all the tourists who arrive in and leave from Naples.
