Padre Matteo Ricci

The Exhibition structure


How the exhibition is organized

The exhibition involves the participation of the leading Italian and Chinese museums, with loans of about 200 works, and is conceived even in the way it is arranged - Italy , Journey, China - as a metaphor of the physical and intellectual distance that Matteo Ricci covered. 

Just as the Jesuit traveled from Italy to China and exchanged ideas with a different and unknown civilization, the Italian and other European works have been put on display in order to meet the Chinese ones.  This creates a self-renewing dialogue, which in celebrating what happened four hundred years ago, confirms the possibility and reality of new understandings and new cooperative undertakings in the present and in the future.  

Each room of the exhibition represents a stage in Matteo Ricci's education and work.
