The spiritual in relation to the history of the city of Rome, starting out from the myth of its foundation and the sacred rituals of the era.

In the current digital age, the dematerialization of our experiences obliges us to reconsider
the founding elements of us as human beings and we feel therefore a need to return to a true and profound experience of individual spirituality.

In this sense, above all for the artists, Rome represents the symbol of a place of origins from which one can start over and for this reason the exhibition features, alongside works of contemporary art, a number of archaeological relics dating from the 8th century B.C: to the origins of Rome, through to the end of the 4th century A.D. when Christianity became the official state religion.
