THE SAMURAI LAND IN VENICE

Until 18 July 2010
On the second floor of Palazzo Fortuny, a prestigeous and noble venetian palace, an extraordinary group of armors, helmets and accessories from the Koelliker Collection of Milan are on view.
The combat gear worn by the Samurai – the powerful warrior class that for seven centuries governed Japan – has always been considered, even in periods of peace, an important sign of command and social status, leading to the creation of armor of astonishing beauty, embellished by ornaments of considerable value.
Curated by Giuseppe Piva; produced in collaboration with the Mazzotta Foun-dation and the City of Milan.
Catalogue published by Mazzotta.
