Toys and Games in Ancient Greece and Rome
The exhibition "Veni, Vidi, Ludique" is currently being developed at the University of Fribourg by Véronique Dasen and Ulrich Schädler to successively present the results of the latest research on games and toys in Roman antiquity in three Swiss museums.
From May 2014 until December 2015 each museum will develop different aspects of the sources and artifacts. The 3 exhibitions share the same common title, but have distinct subtitles according to its specialty:
- Nyon, Roman Museum: "The game of life" (general synthesis), May 24 - October 31, 2014
- La Tour-de-Peilz, Swiss Museum of Games: "Playing with antiquity" (the use of antiquity in modern games), October 10, 2014 - April 19, 2015
- Vallon, Roman Museum: "The die is cast" (on typology, rules and practice of board games), March 14, 2015 - February 21, 2016.
The website will be updated permanently.
