Morgantina Comes Alive
Morgantina rivive 4 - Erminio Gattuso

As if the Morgantina site itself was not enough, it offers one more way to get an idea of ancient city life in a single glance. What is more, its completeness in such a small space, between public spaces and private homes, including sacred sites and buildings for production; let’s also remember the extensive literature on the site, which tells – in the visible parts – all possible interpretations, yet the local Archeoclub wanted to do more. In 2005 an initiative started that is already made clear through its name: Morgantina Comes Alive. For two days in early August each year, after a long preparation of choreography, tailoring, crafts and theater workshops, dozens of actors enact the reconstruction of daily life in the city ancient as if it were ordinary life. It’s not just a reconstruction, but also the participation of the community to recover a remote memory that continues to belong to it.
