The International Numismatic Congress has taken place in the Palazzo dei Congressi in Taormina in 2015 September 21-25.
The logo of the Congress
The logo of a winged triskelés for the XVth International Numismatic Congress Messina/Taormina 2015 was inspired by a bronze coin of Syracuse under Agathocles (at the end of the IV century BC) and was designed by Cecilia Caccamo. Even if it reminds of the Sicilian Trinacria, the aim of Maria Caltabiano, Chair of the scientific Committee, is that the image of the three legs might suggest a dynamic movement towards the acknowledgement of the coin as a witness of historical events and cultural landscapes.
