African Art

“The African Art section is temporarily open by appointment only. On completion of the project for its renewal, it is planned to hold a number of specific theme displays.”

One of the major permanent exhibitions in Italy, it boasts over 300 objects of considerable art-historical value representing various ethnic groups of Black Africa and includes innumerable masks, sculptures, reliquaries, symbols of authority, fetishes and a variety of articles for daily use in wood, bronze, ivory and clay, associated with the original traditions and cults of the African tribes.
