An important anniversary

visit of the exhibition at the Society

Rome, May 2017 РYesterday the Italian Geographical Society celebrated its 150th anniversary with the opening of an exhibition of its collection masterpieces in the presence of the President of the Republic.

On this occasion I participated in setting and mounting the objects that were on display in the library rooms of Palazzetto Mattei in Villa Celimontana, historical headquarters of the Society and a starting point for many Italian expeditions around the world.

In the pictures: visitors at the exhibition; Vice President Prof. Margherita Azzari and General Director of Libraries and Cultural Institutes Dr. Rossana Rummo; conservation work; concert of the Orchestra dei Carabinieri.
