Exhibition tour

The Exhibition is made of 30 photographic panels supplied with texts (soon in English and Chinese, too) that illustrate the stages of Ricci's life e the various steps of his mission.

The Exhibition is divided in four sections:

1 - education of young Ricci

2 - historic and social context of Ming Empire

3 - missionary method of Ricci

4 - Chinese rites controversy

The aim of the exhibition is the spread of the extraordinary example of Father Matteo Ricci, through a simple but not simplistic language: moreover, there are many passages from his works, that will allow the visitor to enter a universe of multiple presences, from which the heritage of Li Madou erects with all its deep humanity and intense spirituality.
