Ex Africa: the most extensive exhibition of African art ever put on in Italy, with over 270 masterpieces from important international museums and collections, produced and organized by CMS.Cultura.

Refined works testify to a rich culture, and conduct the visitor on a journey through time and places, accompanied by encounters of Africans and Europeans between the eleventh and twenty-first centuries: from magic statues that recall the metaphysical, to the outstanding Ife treasures of Phidian perfection, and those from the ancient kingdom of Benin, as well as Afro-Portuguese ivory, to reach historic 20th century Avant-garde and spectacular contemporary African art.
