The exhibition Idols, from the Greek eidolon, or image, invites the visitor to embark on an aesthetic journey across time and space, to discover how artists who lived and worked around 4000–2000 BC created three-dimensional images of the human body. The vast geographic area extends from West to East, from the Iberic peninsula to the Indus valley, from the gates of the Atlantic to the confines of the Far East. A tribute to the late Giancarlo Ligabue, whose multicultural interests are reflected in the exhibition, the journey will reveal a surprising number of common traits, shared by distant people and regions, and compare local variants.
