Today, the Museo dArte Orientale, Torino
opened to the public. With the Museo dArte Orientale, Torino and the Piemonte region confirm and consolidate their ancient tradition in the sphere of studies and research dedicated to oriental cultures as well as their calling for multi-ethnic dialogue and integration. The 1,500 fascinating works of art kept at Palazzo Mazzonis in the heart of Torinos Porta Palazzo district (an historic crossroads of various peoples and languages), includes some pieces of absolute excellence organised in an expositional course that looks towards the Orient in its variety of geographic areas and its cultural and artistic traditions. A MAO visitor will embark on an authentic voyage into the discovery of different artistic and cultural worlds, whose returns, connections, relations and exchanges are easily understood thanks to the aid of a specific didactic apparatus and interactive, multi-medial stations that allow for interdisciplinary in-depth examinations.
