Museum of Chinese Art and Ethnography

The Museum of Chinese Art Museum and Ethnography of Parma began in 1901, as the wish of the founder of the Xaverian Missionaries Guido M. Conforti. At the conclusion of the Universal Exhibit of Turin (1898), Senator Fedele Lampertico donated some valuable pieces to Mons. Conforti, Bishop of Parma and founder of the Xaverian Institute.
The museum represents an artistic and documented container of exceptional importance, fruit of a long and winding journey. For a few decades, the Xaverians worked exclusively on Chinese territory; Conforti appeal to them: "As you come into the various territories of your missions, please send to the Mother house some cultural elements of ethnology and art."
The last input of objects from China arrived in Parma in 1947; soon after, the Xaverian mission presence in China ended.
To that first collection of objects of art and ethnography from China, other pieces were added from the 60s on, of predominantly ethnographic interest, from the other regions of the world (Asia, Africa, Americas) were the Xaverians were present: Japan, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, Africa, etc. Thus enriching the museum of cultural aspect which witness the life in those continents.
With its inauguration on Dec. 1st 2012, the Museum of Chinese Art and Ethnography of the Xaverian Missionaries in Parma has undergone a radical renovation. It's a cultural investment with a specific target: visitors and schools of every kind and degree.
The Museum preserves the commitment of the Xaverian Institute in the field of culture and the enhancement of the great religious and cultural traditions in favor of Mother Earth and the global community. It is a museum with a strong international identity, for the value of its works of art, and the modern architectural solutions and exhibits.
