It is no coincidence that Western philosophy saw the light in Greece. Our ability to develop abstractions is largely determined by the language we speak, and Greek is a formidable language: elegant, precise, creative. Another distinctive trait is its complexity. Not only does it use a different alphabet, but it is far too easy to get lost in its labyrinth of accents, rules, and exceptions. As this exhibition shows, the study of Greek in Italy has a unique tradition in terms of continuity and dissemination. Regardless of the individuals’ passion, capabilities, and performance, students over the centuries have struggled with Greek, and all, just like today, have indulged in occasional moments of distraction.
