The Museum of Islamic Art of Qatar

Doha, June 2017 – I have just returned from my trip to Qatar, my second time in Doha.

I went to Qatar 10 years ago to work as conservator at the Museum of Islamic Art. It was one of the most challenging experiences in my life and surely the most fruitful in terms of what I have learnt about the world.

At that time although the museum was still under construction and it was just an empty space. Today I could finally see it open.
