This video "From Aeschylus to Menander" was realized between 1992 and 1996 by the Museo Regionale Archeologico Eoliano on Lipari, coordinated by Prof. Luigi Bernabò Brea and Madeleine Cavalier, and in collaboration with the Director of the Museum, Umberto Spigo. It was directed by Giovanna Bongiorno. The great educational value of the video, testified by many prizes received at the most prestigious international shows of archaeological cinematography, is also one of the most extraordinary and vivid memories of the great scholar after whom the Museum of Lipari is now named. In the video Luigi Bernabò Brea personally recounts the extraordinary story of the ancient Greek terracotta sculpture of Lipari. It testifies to the man as we remember him, a man of great scholarship and rare intellectual coherence: a Master of whom this video also captures for posterity his irony, his spontaneity, his humour.
