Masterpieces from the Baghdad Museum

Six millennia of Mesopotamian art

Turin, Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna, May 1965


The exhibition, organized in 1965, displayed several masterpieces from the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, enabling the Italian public, at a very early time in the history of cultural communications, to come into contact with over 6,000 years of ancient history through the material documents of an area, Mesopotamia, that is perhaps one of the most interesting in the world from a historical and archaeological point of view. The exhibition therefore marked a first achievement of the extensive research and scientific cooperation activities with Iraqi authorities performed by the Centro Ricerche Archeologiche e Scavi di Torino in its 40 years of existence.
