The human body has always inspired artistic creation and this was especially true for the ancient Greeks and Romans, for whom nude sculptures were an expression of great beauty and an ideal of perfection.

The walls of the Museum of Lisbon - Roman Theatre bear many paintings in which the artist Barahona Possollo works on this theme. Who are these people? And why are they all naked? 

In this Play at the Museum visit, which culminates in a drawing and self-portrait activity, youngsters are challenged to think about the self, the other and the we, following paths towards understanding individuality and diversity.
