This autumn H’ART Museum (f.k.a. Hermitage Amsterdam) brings an exhibition on Gaius Julius Caesar (110 – 44 B.C.), titled ‘I came, I saw, I met my doom, where you can experience Caesar through a collection of almost 150 historical objects—all telling one of the most exciting stories in world history. This exhibition is organised in collaboration with two Italian museums, Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Florence and Museo Nazionale Romano in Rome (and many other museums in Germany and the Netherlands).
As part of Taalhuis Amsterdam’s collaboration with Dante Alighieri Amsterdam, we invite you to a lecture about Caesar and this special exhibition at H’ART Museum by guest curator and chairman of Dante Alighieri Amsterdam, Eric Moorman on 6 October 2023.
After the lecture you’ll have the opportunity to visit the exhibition and from 16:30 we will prepare an Italian aperitivo around the corner of H’ART, our own Muiderstraat 24.
Prof. dr. Eric M. Moormann studied classics, Italian and classical archeology in Nijmegen. In 1986 he took his PhD on the relationship between sculpture in antiquity and Roman painting, after which he worked for the University of Amsterdam for many years. From 2002 to 2021 Moorman served as Professor of Mediterranean archeology at the Radboud Universiteit and worked in Naples, Roma and Athens.
Costs: The lecture is free for members of Dante Alighieri Amsterdam, for non members the price of the lecture is €5,-. To see the exhibition you need to have an entrance ticket to the museum. The Aperitivo at Muiderstraat is free!
