Nineveh, an Assyrian capital between past and present.

Nineveh, an Assyrian capital between past and present.

Venezia – Dorsoduro 1686, San Sebastiano, Aula Colonne, July, 8 – October, 31, 2015

The pictures of the reliefs of the Sennacherib’s “Palace without rivals”, displayed in the exhibition, were taken in 2002 during two survey campaigns aimed at producing an updated and detailed documentation of the state of preservation of the throne suite’s orthostats.

The pictures were taken by Angelo Rubino, photographer of the IsCR; these already were the objects of two past exhibitions, held at the Archivio di Stato of Turin and the Iraq Museum of Baghdad.


Curators of the exhibition are Carlo Lippolis, Stefano de Martino (Centro Ricerche Archeologiche e Scavi di Torino per il Medio Oriente e l'Asia) and Lucio Milano (Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici, Università Ca' Foscari of Venice).

Seleucia al Tigri. Le terrecotte figurate dagli scavi italiani e americani

Seleucia al Tigri. Le terrecotte figurate dagli scavi italiani e americani

Seleucia al Tigri. Le terrecotte figurate dagli scavi italiani e americani
Three volumes (Monografie di Mesopotamia, XVI), Firenze 2014


The work, in three volumes, collects around 11,000 terracotta figurines that were brought to light throughout the last century at Seleucia on the Tigris.

Such a large corpus grew with time thanks to the efforts of two archaeological expeditions, the American mission of the University of Michigan and the Italian mission of the Centro Scavi di Torino. Its comprehensive presentation allows us to fully appreciate the rich informative potential of the Seleucian figurines, born from the encounter and the ex- change between Greek, Mesopotamian and Iranian culture. The book opens with an overview – both in Italian and in English – on the characteristics of the coroplastic production from Seleucia: techniques of manufacturing, iconography, style, chronology, function and meaning of the figurines are taken into consideration. The catalogue that follows is organized on a typological basis and is divided into four sections according to the finding areas of the figurines. The abundant photographic documentation illustrates over two third of the published materials.
