Sardinia keeps confirming itself among the great Italian protagonists of Expo 2015.
On this occasion, in fact, from May 6th to November 29th, the Civic Museum of Milan will host the exhibition “The Island of the towers, treasures of Nuragic Sardinia”.
Born to celebrate the figure of the tireless Sardinian archaeologist Giovanni Lilliu, the exhibition presents the main findings of the last two decades, thanks to which it was possible to redesign the history of the Nuragic civilization. More than a thousand exhibits, including many unprecedented or recently acquired, from all over Sardinia, as representatives of the many archaeological sites located throughout the island.
At the same time at Palazzo Litta, in front of the Civic Museum, will also take place an exhibition of photographs dating back to the ’80s, carried out by Gianni Berengo Gardin. The shots of Berengo Gardin was given, in 1985, the task of documenting the first stay of the Sardinian nuraghi in Milan.
30 years after that first meeting between the megaliths of Sardinia and the City of Milan, visitors are offered a new unmissable chance to immerse themselves in the surreal and magical atmosphere of these stone giants, mysterious and silent witnesses of an era that has deeply marked the history of the island and its role in the Mediterranean.
An interesting opportunity to witness the fascinating new meeting between two histories and two cultures that, while belonging to the same country, turn out to be profoundly different from each other.
