Buddhist Art

In 2010, twenty years after its foundation, the Museum finally succeeded in giving the deserved space and importance to the Buddhist Art collection belonging to the Matthaes family, acquired in the early ’70s by the Museum’s founder during his countless trips to the East. A careful selection was made from among the numerous and remarkable items from Thailand, Burma, China and Japan to form the permanent exhibition entitled “East Asian Buddhist Art”, considered one of the finest Italian collections of Indochinese art.
