Did you know that in Classical Antiquity statues and monuments were painted? That the stones of the Parthenon, of Rome's Colosseum, or the statues of Venus de Milo had vivid, often garish colours? Time erased nearly all of those paintings. But there are residues that allow us to restore the original look of these monuments.
Starting with a visit to the crypt of the Museum, wherein lie the only three Etruscan sarcophaggi extant in Portugal, and after observing some chromatic reconstitutions of classical monuments, participants will be invited to pictorically re-create symbolic and decorative motifs, letting their creativity soar.
