A guide to the new Magna Graecia collections at the Museo Archeologico in Naples, designed exclusively for children and teenagers with insights, games and a compelling comic strip story.
Medusa comes to life from the splendid mosaics of Mann, the narrating voice of the adventurous story of the Greek colonization in Southern Italy which began almost three thousand years ago and changed our civilization. Drawings of ships, monsters, banquets, temples, divinities and some of the most exemplary pieces in the collection fill the text by Rosa Tiziana Bruno, a writer and expert in narrative didactics. Easy-to-use insight entries, drawn up by museum officials, describe the most significant finds from the Magna Graecia collection, reproduced here in colour.
At the end of the first part of the guide, children can verify the information acquired by completing some games and tests, designed by Raffaella Martino.
The book ends with the comic book Mission Magna Graecia conceived and designed by the talented authors of the Comics Italian School Comix: Linda and the cat Caesar have to solve the mysterious case of the disappearance of some precious works from the museum, but to do so they have to make a dangerous journey into the ‘Metaworld’, a parallel existence where the memories of objects live, and face the terrible ‘forgetters’, ruthless agents who hit the monuments to make us forget their history.
