Brief Photo Story of the Museum

 

Just a few images from the first years of the foundation of the Museum in 1901, when Bishop Conforti, founder of the Xaverian missionaries, understood and appreciated the value of the works of art and ethnographic objects coming from his missionaries present in China. Since the early beginnings of the museum, the objects were exhibited according to the various Chinese dynasties, and by their use and type of material.
The Museum sums up the work of the Xaverian Institute in the field of culture, its commitment to the enhancement of the great religious and cultural traditions, its commitment in favor of Mother Earth, and the global community.
