Detail of Calliope, Molinete Archaeological Park (Cartagena)
Detail of Apollo, Molinete Archaeological Park (Cartagena)
This exhibition displays an exceptional collection of Roman mural paintings from the 1st century AD, which were recovered from the archaeological site of the ancient New Carthage colony.
The recovered pieces depict Apollo and the poetic muses Calliope and Terpsichore. They date back to the second half of the 1st century and were probably made by artists of Italian origin (from the area around Vesuvius) or who were trained in this area. The works were discovered during excavation work carried out in the Molinete de Cartagena Archaeological Park. This is the site of the urban centre of the ancient Roman colony of New Carthage, and it has become one of the most cutting-edge archaeological projects in Spain.The “Archaeology and Heritage of New Carthage” conferences are also being held alongside the exhibition. They serve to learn about the archaeological and cultural heritage of Roman Cartagena, as well as the results of the Molinete Park project.
