traditions RomeRome shows signs of African art Over 100 works buck stereotypes and reveal thriving culture (ANSA) - Rome, March 3 - A fascinating new exhibition here seeks to give visitors a glimpse of African art and culture and buck some stereotypes in the process. The show, entitled "Segni e simboli: i linguaggi nelle tradizioni africane" (Signs and symbols: languages in African traditions), opens at the city's Biblioteca Angelica on March 6 2006 .

The situation of African art museums and dealers in the North of Italy:

A report by Francesco Ghimenton, first published in our discussion group:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AfricanAntiques/

- In Milan there are not museums of African art (there is a project for a Museum of Non-European Arts with pieces from the collection of Ezio Bassani, but it doesn't exist now). I completely agree with Margalit's opinion about the Missionary's and Collector's Museums.
In the center of Milan, in Via Borgonuovo 5 (near Via Montenapoleone) you will find the Dalton-Somaré gallery who is surely the best dealer in town (daltonsomare*hotmail.com) . (...)

- In Bergamo there are at least 3 places to visit:
The Caffi museum of natural history in the upper town of Bergamo in  Piazza Cittadella 10 -24129 Bergamo-Istituto di Geologia e Paleontologia,Tel: +39 035 286020- , there is a new and  fine section with good African pieces (entrance is free) 
http://www.triassico.it/default.asp?sez=3&pag=18&lang=it

urgano museo africano-In Urgnano (a small town near Bergamo) there is the Museo Africano  with a small but interesting section with pieces from the Monti collection (www.museoafricano.it )


In Capriate (between Milan and Bergamo) there is the Vittorio Carini  private library and collection, I really suggest you to go there but  of course you have to contact Vittorio and take an appointment  (www.webdomino.com/africanbooks )


- In Verona (quite far East from Milan, but a wonderful town !) you  can visit the Etnie galleria  www.etniearte.com vicolo Cavalletto 4/A (Arche Scaligere) 37121 Verona- Tel +39 045 592502 etnie @ libero. Nice pieces not too  expensive.
- In Bologna (far South from Milan) you can go to the Denise & Beppe  Berna gallery but you have to take an appointment (beppe.berna*tin.it)

If you will be in Milan at the beginning of the year and you have the  time, I suggest to go to Turin and visit the exhibition organized by  Ezio Bassani ( www.mostraafrica.it ). There are a great number of  masterpieces from Nigerian museums, Tervuren, Metropolitan, the Ross,  Malcolm, Goldet colletions etc. You can go to Turin in an hour by  train from Milan and it is really worth a visit. It will last until  the mid of February.

I hope you will enjoy your staying here in Italy,
