The catalogue of the amulets collection "Giuseppe Bellucci"

The catalogue of the amulets collection "Giuseppe Bellucci", exposed permanently at the National Archeologic Museum of Perugia.
It's an accurate study that shows the meaning of objects that have been connected to apotropaic/ propitiatory value : from the "gravid" or "aquiline" stones to the "brevi", from the arrow stones to the coral, considered a very effective amulet against evil eye and whose mith, that comes from the pagan tradition, has been reconverted to the Christian context.
The exhibition, whose espositive processes are minutely reconstructed, it's the result of a cooperation between the Anthropologic Section of the "Man and Territory" department and the University of Perugia . The project and the relative productions are directed by Professor Giancarlo Baronti
