Dying in Beauty - Pompeii
How to find urgency and originality in an exhibition about a much covered topic like Pompeii? That was the design challenge for the exhibition. The solution was to focus on lightness, on beauty – and on the link with modern day life. Something that Pompeii exhibitions until now did not do. This has resulted in an exhibition that shines a very contemporary light on the beauty of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Statement of the jury
The skilful use of lighting and color, makes the antique exhibits appear in a new light in the truest sense of the word. The interesting exhibition concept challenges old perceptions and replaces them with a refreshingly new staging that captivates with beauty and lightness.
