The Major Exhibitions "The Silk Road and Chinese Civilisation" at the Casa dei Carraresi, Treviso have been made possible by the energy and dedication of the President of the Fondazione Cassamarca, the Honourable Dino De Poli. With great foresight regarding the developing international situation and the rapid transformation of the Asian continent, he has focussed on China and India as the emerging powers which are changing our vision of the world in the 21st century.

Adriano Màdaro has been asked by the Fondazione Cassamarca to act as curator for a further four exhibitions: three with India between 2012 and 2015 and one with Tibet in 2015-2016. Agreements have recently been reached with the respective museum authorities in New Delhi and Lhasa.

The organisation of the Major Exhibitions at the Casa dei Carraresi will be undertaken by Sigillum, the company responsible for the previous exhibitions dedicated to the Birth of the Heavenly Empire (2005 - 2006) and to Genghis Khan (2007 - 2008).

The third exhibition dedicated to China is “The secrets of the forbidden City”, focusing on the Forbidden City in Beijing, the fabulous palace built between 1406 and 1421 by Yongle, the third emperor of the Ming Dynasty.

A virtual visit will be made possible by a magnificent model in paulownia wood (on a scale of 1:200; occupying 40 sq. m.) accurately recreating every detail. 14 master craftsmen supervised by 3 architects have worked for 2 years to produce the model exclusively for the exhibition.

The majority of the 350 exhibits come from the collections and the vaults of the imperial palaces. Precious jewels, magnificent silk robes, rare porcelain and objects from the everyday life of the imperial family will stand beside delicate paintings, golden statues, fine pieces of jade, rare textiles and beautifully worked furniture; all items of enormous historical and artistic value.

A special section is dedicated to Matteo Ricci, the famous Italian Jesuit, who at the beginning of the 17th century introduced western science to the court and brought Europe closer to the Chinese Empire. Rare documents, ancient texts and ingenious mechanisms for the study of astronomy from the Ricci collections in Macerata, (the native city of the great missionary) and from the Museum of Astronomy in Rome will be on display.
