Antiquity... this word encompasses a World, three continents – Africa, Asia and Europe – multiple civilizations – Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Hebrew, Phoenician, Persian, Chinese, Hindu, Cretan, Greek, Roman – and more than 4000 years of history. The World, as we know it, was molded in this time – vast – and in these founding spaces, fecundated by rivers – Nile, Tiger and Euphrates, Indo and Yellow – and blessed by seas. One of those seas – the Mediterranean – due to its privileged position on the path of so many people and cultures, soon personified in history the role of the “true sea”, the “sea between the lands” – that both the Hebrews and classic authors such as Lucretius, Plinius and Seneca mentioned – whose waters, symbol of a World in transformation, represent and evoke the dangers and difficulties of the passage from a known to an unknown World. In “thy arms” of this known World – of this sea, these rivers and these lands – I have lost myself, a long time ago... But in the arms of this World to know – Antiquity – I found myself again, in order to witness a new construction of the true history of the World. A history stripped of dogmas, distortions and ignorance. The International Congress - “’In thy arms I lost myself’ – Images, Perceptions and Productions in/ of Antiquity” – aims to open clues, to promote debates and devise resources that can contribute to the creation of a new Canon, based on a true knowledge of Ancient History.
