More than 30 works at the Uffizi, including sculptures of baby gods, 'action figures', games and toys from thousands of years ago

'Action figures', toys and games from thousands of years ago, sculptures of divinities represented in their infancy, works placed at child height to meet the needs of the youngest visitors. Child-friendly. Growing-up in ancient Rome is the new archaeological exhibition at the Uffizi, which addresses a hitherto unexplored theme in an innovative way. Over thirty works of art describe different moments in the daily life of children during the Roman Empire. Birth, rites of passage to adulthood, school, entertainment, relationships with animals and fears are just some of the subjects epitomized by statues, sarcophagi, reliefs and everyday objects.
