Alexander the Great. Encounter with the Orient

Opened on 3 December 2010, this exhibition explored the life of the Macedonian King and his place in the spreading of Greek culture, which in turn absorbed influences from new civilisations.

With its 330 archaeological objects from various museums from around the world, the exhibition examined the cultural progress and exchange occurring between the cities that Alexander the Great conquered and explored.

The Arte Canal Gallery offered this selection of the most important artefacts from the twelve years of his conquests until his death in Babylon. The legacy and fame of this important historical figure continues to grow to this day, with over 162,000 visitors to this exhibition before it closed on 3 May 2011.
