Translated from Japanese by

Ancient Rome boasted the greatest prosperity in human history. Above all, the thermae (public bathhouse) symbolizes the affluent lifestyle and excellent construction technology. Thermae, which is said to be an incomparable bath lover, is of great interest to Japan, and has become known to many people, especially through the manga "Thermae Romae" by Mari Yamazaki. This exhibition introduces the lives of the people of ancient Rome with a focus on Thermae through more than 100 works, videos, and models, including paintings, sculptures, and archaeological materials from the collection of the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. This exhibition also highlights Japan's bathing culture nurtured in its unique climate. Just as Lucius, the protagonist of Thermae Romae, traveled back and forth between Japan and Rome through the bathhouse, this will be an opportunity to experience each bathing culture.
