Until 17th September 2023

The Musée National du Sport de Nice (National Museum of Sports) is getting us into the mood for the most anticipated sporting event of 2024, the Paris Olympic & Paralympic Games, with an exhibition produced in collaboration with the Louvre.


On view until 17th September 2023, this exhibition links past & present through a variety of themes that highlight values commonly shared by Antiquity & the world of sports: the triumphant body, peace, freedom & fame.

It is a great honour for the Mougins Museum to take part in this exhibition thanks to the loan of two black-figure amphorae from the 6th century BC. One of them represents hoplites in a duel (MMoCA59), the other, Heracles fighting Geryon (MMoCA103) - details of both artefacts can be appreciated on the attached image.
