Thalie in Napoli: Exploring the graces’ origins in Pompeii

It was not until the eighteenth century that excavations uncovered this glorious city that was wiped off the map in a matter of hours. The artists, painters and lovers of Antiquity then flocked to Campania and fell in love with the moving ruins. Everything has been so well preserved under gray ashes. 

Pompeii is a time capsule, a door to forgotten worlds. It is in this immense city, so alive, so close that a fresco of the three graces was discovered. In Roman mythology, the three Graces personify life in its fullness. Thaleia is the name of one of The Three Graces or Charities which means “the flourishing” in ancient greek. Thalie embodies all characteristics of nature’s beauty, creativity, and the spirit of youth.
