Corona RC

The story behind our picture read here:

The south of Italy, in ancient times part of the Magna Graecia, is endowed (and weighted down) with an overabundance of cultural heritage. The numerous archaeological museums, even those in small towns, are home to astonishing relics of the past. One of the most famous archaeological museums is the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria, famous for its "Bronze of Riace", the ancient masterpieces of bronze sculpture.

But there are also works of art of timeless clarity and beauty in the showcases. Our picture shows the Corona Aurea, a laurel wreath of gold plate with finely chiselled, a work from the 4th-3rd century B. C., found in the area of Ravagnese.
