The British Museum’s latest exhibition looks at the ancient history of this Italian island…
The Guardian: **** Jonathan Jones described it as: “The British Museum’s latest stimulating survey of world history.”
The Upcoming: **** Anna Souter wrote that: “The exhibition gives a compelling insight into the little-known but exciting early history of the island through a combination of succinct texts and the dynamic presentation of objects.”
Londonist: *** Tabish Khan commented: “We learned a lot from it and it’s well researched, though there aren’t too many artefacts that really draw the eye. Ultimately it’s a solid, if unspectacular, exhibition.”
Evening Standard:**** Matthew Collings was enthusiastic about the exhibition saying: “The show makes you think of profound cultural undercurrents carrying on for immense periods.”
Culture Whisper:**** “this is a fine, if deeply historical, look at a forgotten superpower.”
The Telegraph: **** Alastair Sooke found: “perhaps it’s best to ignore the subplot of contemporary politics, and simply marvel at Sicily’s outstanding past.”
Sicilly: Culture and Conquest opens at the British Museum today (21st April) and will be on display until the 14th August. Tickets cost £10, while under 16’s go free.
