Applied Arts: Japanese

In honor of the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Italy, the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum has dedicated three of its “Thursdays at the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum” to explore the excellence of Japanese culture. The encounters in Italian, which have the official recognition of the Japanese Consul General in Milan and the Japanese Ambassador to Italy, have been realized thanks to the contribution of the Region of Lombardy and in collaboration with the Italia-Asia “Guglielmo Scalise” cultural center. The evening encounters (in Italian) enlivening the museum’s Grand Salon will begin on the 21st of April.
