International Museum Day 2011: Reminiscences and tales of Africa

“… I come from the Elephant Coast
Reminiscences and narratives from a collector of African art
Bruno Finocchiaro was born in Libya of Italian origins and for almost 30 years lived and worked in the Elephant Coast. This is where he put together his collections of art objects from West Africa, coming into frequent contact with people from the various ethnic groups that inhabit the general region. In this current outreach, the collector presents a selection of objects from his collection to the public, explains their significance, narrates their history and remembers how they came into his possession.
