Akbar il Grande Imperatore dell’India

TAKE A JOURNEY THROUGH INDIA THROUGH THE EYES OF ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S GREATEST EMPERORS

Witness the beauties of India seen through the eyes of one of the country’s greatest emperors, Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar. For the first time in Italy, the rare exhibition displays a collection of tapestries, precious swords and spades, jewelry and paintings that span the great emperor’s entire reign (1556-1605). Prior to its showing in Rome, the last display of the Akbar exhibit was featured in New York hosted by the Asia Society in the 1980s. Through the artwork, visitors are able to witness how Akbar not only changed India but also how he was able to bring together people of different religions, spiritualities and cultures. Though Akbar the Great was an illiterate, he held a deep appreciation and devotion for the arts, crafts, poetry and literature. The rare collection includes over 150 pieces of artwork hosted by the Fondazione Roma Museo at Palazzo Sciarra.
