Venere di Morgantina

Venere di Morgantina

La Dea di Morgantina è una statua proveniente da uno scavo clandestino, pertanto non identificabile con certezza, probabilmente un santuario non lungi il sito archeologico di Morgantina (provincia di Enna), in Italia.

È esposta al Museo archeologico di Aidone in seguito ad un contenzioso protrattosi per anni tra l'Italia e gli Stati Uniti, causato dal precedente acquisto illecito dell'opera da parte del Paul Getty Museum di Malibu.


This famous Greek statue “the Venus of Morgantina” standing 2.2 mt tall, from the eponymous archaeological site in Sicily (sculpted between 425 and 400 BC) – returned to Sicily on March 18th 2011 after a long and forced exile in the United States.

The Statue was assigned to Morgantina Kamarina, after the agreement of Gela (424 BC) brought about by Hermocrates of Syracuse. The diplomatic meeting, focussing on: “Sicily for the Sicilian”, took place between a number of Sicilian cities calling for a temporary halt to several years of warfare. The creator of the statue was a direct disciple of Phidias, and as there was a thriving local cult of Demeter and Kore at Morgantina, and so she is most probably Demeter or Persephone (Kore).
