Until February 17, 2019, the sculpture of the Roman Empire can be seen in the central hall of the National Museum of Fine Arts.

The Venus of Capua, a renowned Roman sculpture dating back to the 2nd century AD, is now being hosted at the city’s National Museum of Fine Arts until February 17, 2019, as part of a cultural initiative launched by the Italian Embassy in Buenos Aires.

The marble statue, originally located at the Naples Archeological Museum, represents the Greek goddess “Aphrodite” placing her left foot upon the helmet of Mars as a symbol of the victory of love over war.

Sponsored by the Italian Embassy in Buenos Aires, the Italian Institute of Culture, the Culture Ministry and the National Museum of Fine Arts, “the ‘Shape of Beauty’ initiative aims to celebrate the different expressions of beauty” of the Italian culture, said Ambassador Giuseppe Manzo at its inauguration on Wednesday.
