This is a journey through the music of antiquity that reveals the role of this as legitimating power, as a complement to the sacred and as a source of magical effects beyond the aesthetic pleasure of listening. A journey through a long historical period that also saw the birth of the professional musician and an instrumental industry spread throughout the Mediterranean, from the Middle East to Gaule.

About Protected content of great variety, some of them never shown to the public so far for their fragility, coming from the collections of the Louvre and a score of international institutions, including the National Archaeological Museum of Athens and the Metropolitan Museum of New York, allow the visitor to hear and understand a sound landscape of more than three thousand years of History.

Audio devices will allow the visitor to hear how the most common instruments of antiquity sounded, as well as a reproduction of the older song known until now

The visit is led by a mediator who, from the dialogue with the participants, presents the key themes of the exhibition, contextualizes them and resolves the possible doubts or questions that may arise.

Visit will be led in SPANISH Language.

We will have a drink after the event, if you wish.

Hope to see you there!
