Nurturing the democratic debate.  
The International Norms Section of UNESCO’s World Heritage Division is presenting the exhibition “Atlantika: Sardinia, Mythical Island” under the auspices of the Permanent Delegation of Italy to UNESCO.
Visitors will be able to admire the Anatolian, Phoenician, Carthaginian, Roman and Catalan vestiges of its rich past. With Barumini, a nuraghe fortress on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, Sardinia questions its prehistory, especially the imposing vanished civilisation of the Nuraghes, which seems to have played a major role in Mediterranean Antiquity.
The exhibition is part of the international symposium “Knowledge of the Ancient World: Where Were the Columns of Hercules?”, which will take place in Room IX on Tuesday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The symposium, based on Sergio Frau’s book The Columns of Hercules: An Investigation, will focus on the ideas of real and imaginary boundaries and borders that nurture our vision of Antiquity.
