📍National Archaeological Museum of Naples - MANN

THE SEA AND THE WATER OF NEAPOLIS. Heritage Community Network towards a diffused and shared museum

Organised by CNR IRISS, The International Propeller Clubs and the Archaeological Museum of Naples

Participation under registration


Objectives and contents

The initiative is developed within the Memorandum of Understanding related to the project ‘The sea and the water of Neapolis’ with the aim of enhancing the “freshwater” and “saltwater” routes. The conference will be the occasion to present the project, which configures itself as a diffused and shared museum, in which cultural sites linked to the sea and the water of Neapolis have been interconnected.

Starting from a section of the MANN dedicated to the Mediterranean “yesterday, today and tomorrow”, an itinerary is being defined focused on water as the founding element first of the Greek poleis, then of the Roman urbes up to the present day.

The project links “The World of Men”, “The World of Gods and Myth”, “The Symbols of Water in the Sky”, “The Underwater Archaeology ante litteram” and “Water Towards an Idea of Ecology” through a “Heritage Community Network” consisting of the sites of the OBVIA ExtraMANN project (Out Of Boundaries Viral Art Dissemination,) the Port of Naples (in cooperation with the Port System Authority of the Central Tyrrhenian Sea and Terminal Napoli), museums and archaeological sites.
