mostra (3)

Yesterday, the Italian Ambassador to China, Massimo Ambrosetti, concluded his two-day mission in Chongqing, in the south-west of China. During the visit, the Ambassador spoke at the closing ceremony of the exhibition “The Centenary Triptych: Leonardo 1919 Raphael 1920 Dante 1921 and Italian ingenuity at the origins of Made in Italy”, which was attended by the main exponents of the cultural community of Chongqing.
The exhibition, curated by Virginia Lapenta and Guicciardo Sassoli de’ Bianchi Strozzi, was set up at the Sichuan Museum of Fine Arts and was organized by the Consulate General of Italy in Chongqing and the Italian Cultural Institute of Beijing, with the support from the Ministry of Culture, the Italian Embassy in Beijing and the friends association of the Accademia dei Lincei. Before arriving in Chongqing, the project was previously exhibited in Beijing during the summer.
Ambassador Ambrosetti also had meetings with the Deputy Secretary of the Communist Party of Chongqing, Li Mingqing, and with the Director of the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, Prof. Pang Maokun.
In the words of the Ambassador “this year marks the tenth anniversary of the opening of our Consulate General here in Chongqing. It’s an important milestone. Italy, in fact, has always been aware of the importance of Chongqing and South-West China, as well as its role as a lever for national economic development.”

The Ambassador also visited some places of historical-cultural interest, including the archaeological site of Dazu, included in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list in 1999.
The mission to Chongqing was also an opportunity to meet the representatives of the Italian community who participated in the closing ceremony of the “Centennial Triptych” exhibition.
