Bacchus is the god of wine, theater and fertility. Equivalent to the Greek Dionysus, it also picks up ancient traditions and agglutinates other deities.
The exhibition reveals the origins of the god, his deeds, the composition of his follow-up, his role in the origin of the theater, the elements that symbolize him and his marked character of domestic divinity.
The exhibition also underlines the relationship between Bacus and the Roman city of Baetulo, which, in addition to having a theater, had the main source of wealth in the cultivation of the vineyard and the production and commercialization of the wine.
Includes pieces from the Museum of Badalona, some of exceptional quality, and about fifty objects from other Catalan museums, which show the rooting of this divinity in the society of the Roman period and which allow to discover all the masks of this polyhedral and complex God.
