Magnete The Warrior OF Capestrano


(English) The visitor of the National Museum of Chieti will never forget the “Guerriero di Capestrano”, the huge warrior with his 2 meters and 9 centimeters height, one of the most important pre-Roman work of art of Middle Italy. It was discovered by chance in 1934 in Capestrano by L’Aquila. The “guerriero” has remained for a long time without a name until the Professor Adriano La Regina didn’t succeed in translating the Picene inscription by the statue. He discovered in this way the name of the warrior – Nevio Pompuledio – and of his artist – Aninius
