African Museum of Verona, a hidden gem of the town

It's nice to visit the lesser known venues in Verona, because like the masterpieces that everyone should know, there are museums that have other purposes in addition to organizing exhibitions, emphasizing the essential values such as solidarity and safeguard of human rights.

We're talking about the African Museum of Verona, opened and run by the Combonian Missionaries to spread the African culture in Italy through objects collected by the missionaries and by thematic meetings, aiming to tell the complexity of Africa.

What to see at the African Museum

This museum, located in Vicolo Pozzo 1, was an intuition of the Bishop Francis Sogaro and has been restored several times over the decades. The last redesign dates back to the summer of 2014, so visit it now allows you to see the most relevant innovations of the exhibition center, as the videos that help the visitor to discover the history of Africa.

This museum also hosts temporary exhibitions, such as Je Reviens, the photographic journey of Giovanni Cobianchi from Lampedusa to Mali: in other words, a backwards travel following to the steps of migrants. The idea of the exhibition was born thanks to the friendship established by the photographer with a group of young Central African refugees gathered in Verona; this exhibition deals with a topic always current.

The African museum organizes educational activities for families and students, furthermore collaborates to the realization of the African Film Festival, scheduled from 7th to 16th November at the Stimate cinema and Camploy theater in Verona.

We recommend a visit to the museum to see the huge ethno-anthropological collection, the library with over 20,000 volumes and the film library, useful for both Africa experts and those who want to go beyond the clichés and approach this wonderful continent.

Benefit from this period attending the festival and exploring an unknown place, yet so present in our daily lives. This is the official website of the museum: www.museoafricano.org
