The situation of African art museums and dealers in the North of Italy:
A report by Francesco Ghimenton, first published in our discussion group:
- 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 Bergamo there are at least 3 places to visit:
-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 )
I hope you will enjoy your staying here in Italy,
