‘Recycling Beauty’ is an unprecedented study dedicated entirely to the reuse of Greek and Roman antiquities in post-antique contexts, from the Middle Ages to the Baroque era. The exhibition is curated by Salvatore Settis and Anna Anguissola with Denise La Monica, designed by Rem Koolhaas/OMA. The underlying premise of this research is the need to think of the classical not simply as a legacy of the past, but also as a vital element with the power to affect our present and future. Through an interpretive approach and an experimental exhibition format, ancient heritage-in particular Greco-Roman heritage-becomes, in Settis’ words, “a key that provides access to the multiplicity of cultures in the contemporary world.”
