Progetto Genesi. Art and Human Rights

The exhibition identifies within the Collezione Genesi six main theme-based sections through which the works express a message linked to the defense of human rights.

Ponte tra Culture volunteers produced specific podcasts on each section, offering their own memories to make viewing the works an even more educational experience. FAI Ponte tra Culture is a FAI project addressed to favoring the intercultural conversation between people from different geographical places.
