Emona: Myth and Reality

Slovene capital Ljubljana is lucky to have Emona as its Roman counterpart, and Emona in turn, is lucky to have a myth speaking about its origins – the Argonauts.

The exhibition spaces carefully followed the storyline of the myth, where a glowing ellipse that visitors could enter protected the age-old story and, in another part, of the everyday life in Emona. The design of these spaces echoed the architectural environments od Emona – city walls, forum, triumphal arch, and, within a private house, the triclinium.

The colours, all taken from Emona’s frescoes, surprised the visitors with their brilliance.
