Caricamento player

Saturday in Rome if you have a ceremony to celebrate the return in Italy of a chiamato sculptor group “Orfeo e le sirene”, which was illegally exported in the Stati Uniti negli anni Settanta, dopo essere estato ritrovato in a clandestine scavo in the Taranto area . The opera comes from the beginning of the dry quarter BC, in the period of Greek domination of its area in which it was established, and it was composed of three terracotta statues of quasi-natural grandeur and considered to be of great value. Dopo essere stata trafugata fu aquistata dal Getty Museum di Malibù, in California, for 550 thousand dollars: oggi è valutata 8 milioni di dollari.

It is possible to report it in Italy thanks to the investigative work of the Carabinieri command for the protection of cultural heritage, which has not revealed the origin and wealth of the postamenti. Sarà is posted on October 15th in Rome at the new Museo dell’Arte Salvata, inaugurated this year inside the Museo Nazionale Romano for raccogliere opere recuperate in seguito a furti, vendite ed esportazioni illegali, oppure che erano disperse por qualche ragione. Poi sarà spostata al Museo archeologico di Taranto, dove resterà in permanent way.

The Getty Museum gave three statues that made up Orpheus and the Siren were in a row, one from the other. The current Roman exhibition reverses the provision and has changed to present the greatest meaning, as the director of the Museo Nazionale Romano, Stéphane Verger, has heard: Orfeo – the lyre singer of Greek mythology who enchanted with his music “Persino gli animali” – è stato messo di fronte alle due sirene.

The scene depicted dovrebbe infatti refers to an episode of the Argonauti myth, the group of Greek heroes guided by Giasone who left for a voyage in the sea alla ricerca del “vello d’oro”, an oggetto capable of healing on the other hand, after a great adventure and peripeze. One of the queste is the encounter with the sirene, who attiravano i navigatori con il loro canto and li inducevano to dimenticarsi dei propri compiti, carrying it to the shipwreck and alla morte. Gli argonauti riuscirono a scampare il pericolo thanks to the fatto che Orfeo, member of the team, if he mise to sing his lyre, distracting and companions and carrying addirittura sirene to fermare il loro canto to ascort him.

«Orfeo e le sirene racconta un contro musicale che è also one contro philosophical e politico», has detto Verger, «one finds the Greek city and the chaos of the world, the due music and the divine». Secondo Verger la nuova disposizione dell’opera sarà più calzante con questa letura.

Regarding many other art operations and illegally exported, in the case of Orfeo and the agreement is reached for the restitution of the status più lineare perché if it is required to reveal the origin and the illegal export. I musei del mondo infatti sono pieni di opere coming from altre zone, sometimes also very far away geographically and culturally, but the stability of chi is the legitimate proprietà non è affatto semplice, per diverse ragioni.

Once again it is difficult to destroy the original collocazione with extreme certainty, altre volte non è possibile demostrare que sono state acquistate illegally, altre ancora furono acquistate legally e con regolari diritti di esportazione, ma magari a molto inferiore rispetto al loro valore odierno. The situation may be very diverse from case to case, and the criteria of attribution may vary greatly and stabilize only its geographical base is not necessarily the same.

It is a question of which if it argues much, in the field of the history of art, and it is a gross dispute that vanno avanti da anni: quella sui marmi del Partenone, for example, sent to the British Museum of London ma claim più volte dal greek government , from the moment that was originally found in the main temple of the Acropoli di Atene.

His Orfeo e le sirene la questione della proprietà did not riguardava directly a maggiore legitimazione d’esposizione a Taranto per ragioni geografiche e storiche: la restitution ha a che fare con il traffico illegale dell’opera ricotruito dai carabinieri (prima di arrivare al Getty Museum di Malibù was a passata of an art gallery in Svizzera, which was a stata venduta da persone affiliate alla criminalità organizzata).

Negli ultimi anni è molto augmento l’impegno per Ricotruire Situazioni illecite del questo genere da part delle forze dell’ordine, e oggi i beni culturali rubati o acquisiti illegalmente finiscono spesso in private collections, nascosti al pubblico, proprio por avoide que ne scopra the provenance.

The command of the Carabinieri for the protection of cultural heritage has existed for 53 years and has recovered myriad artefatti, sia da musei che da collections private, often bought in time in cui and controlled its provenance was not assai less stringenti. Quello di Orfeo e delle sirene però è one dei recuperi più importanti de semper, per estessa ammissione di Roberto Riccardi, Commander of the group.

Riccardi has also been working on the recovery of the Fano athlete, a Greek bronze statue always kept at the Getty Museum in Malibu, restored in 1964 in Italy along the length of Fano, in the Marche. It is one of the rare bronze statues of Greche that arrived recently in our days, the most important of which was probably due to the Bronzi di Riace conservati at the National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria.
