Living well: what the classics teach us

Event Slider

Each session brings together classicists, researchers, actors and art historians to reflect on ‘living well’ and ‘living well today’.

What does it mean to ‘live well’? What guidelines can we find in art and literature?

Join in, throughout the day, with six encounters around six universal themes, which take as their starting point a work from the Museum collection and excerpts of great epic poetry from Antiquity, including The Iliad, The Odyssey and Argonautica.

Co-organised by Ana Alexandra Alves de Sousa, from the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Lisbon, Carlos Liz from the Centre for Classical Studies at the University of Coimbra, and Inês Fialho Brandão, from the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum.
