Memory and impression

The ambition of this travelling exhibition is to highlight memory as a basic component of collective identity in a local and supra-local environment.

The issue of maintaining and promoting historical memory is topical in an increasingly globalized environment, as knowledge of history provides social groups with a sense of the past and defines their future decisions. The role of monuments, both moveable and immoveable, is very significant in the visual consolidation of a joint past, to reinforce the collective consciousness.

Coins are amongst the most characteristic vectors for promoting collective memory. Beyond all else - they constitute tools that imprint and transmit memory. Consequently, coins comprise a special category of exhibits and, despite their limited size, prove helpful in learning about the past, as, besides their financial dimension, they also contain historical, symbolic and artistic value.

Fourteen select sculptures from the Museum’s permanent exhibition were selected alongside seventeen coins that bear similar or related illustrative types.
