Museography of the “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable” exhibition-event imagined by the English artist Damien Hirst.


"Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable" is the most ambitious project ever produced by Damien Hirst. Ten years of work have been necessary for the artist to carry out this extraordinary artistic project, in the literal sense of the term, narrating the history of the ancient vessel 'Unbelievable' (Apistos in Greek koinè), its sinking and the discovery of his precious cargo: the impressive collection of Aulus Calidius Amotan, a freed slave better known under the name of Cif Amotan II, intended for a temple dedicated to the sun.
