City, men and gods on the Silk Roads
The common thread of the three great religions that characterized the land routes of the Silk Road from the second century. B.C. to the fourteenth century A.D. accompanies the visitor along a complex multimedia route that winds in the evocative atmosphere of the Baths of Diocletian, exceptionally open for this occasion by the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Rome. Through the filters of the look, sounds, voices and gestures, the staging media plays twelve emblematic places, able to tell the complexity and the cultural and religious contamination identity of the Silk Roads.
The wooden crate, storage system of the archaeological material stored in these spaces, becomes a metaphor for the journey and support for video installations, useful for the staging that develops here, in time and space, between preciousexhibits and rare pieces that dialogue with large scenarios, echoes of distant voices and stories of places and timeless characters.
The route, which starts with a great animated map, go to Palmyra, Tur ‘Abdin, Ctesiphon, Taq-e Bostan, Merv, Samarkand, Ghazni, the valleys of Swat, Kucha, Turfan, Dunhuang and Xi’an, stops where the journey chase traces draws ancient streets and weaving stories lost in the memory of travelers and people who lived and live in those places. On the way, using scientific advice IsIAO and scientific care of Francesco D’Arelli and Pierfrancesco Callieri, the multimedia installations are a counterpoint to the unique experience of being able to continuously enjoy the works of inestimable value as the Mongolian and Map Bible of Marco Polo, never exhibited before. Works that are offered to us as a precious gift at the end of the trip, and they encapsulate charm and content.
