After the great success of recent years, the Treviso exhibitions at the Casa dei Carraresi Museum have become one of the most important events to mark in your diary!

From the Temple to the Palace, Masterpieces of Indian Art ', will offer the opportunity to get close to another fascinating and ancient oriental civilization.


A long series of testimonies on the Indian art and culture from the second millennium BC to the time of Maharaja will be shown at the Casa dei Carraresi - Treviso mostre 2013/2014 to retrace the most important points of Indian civilization. The Indian art exhibition is hosted in an environment of great scenic impact, transporting visitors into a veritable journey through magical and seductive atmospheres that evoke the original environment.

For several years now, the exhibitions in Casa dei Carraresi in Treviso travel through the East to tell stories, cultures and lifestyles of some of the oldest civilizations in the world. After China and Tibet, the Casa dei Carraresi Treviso mostra 2013 will be dedicated to Indian culture: art and architecture of a country that in recent years plays an increasingly important role in the international scene.


The ancient and modern works of Indian art exhibition will intertwine into one of the most interesting art exhibitions in Treviso in recent years: a unique path with vintage photographs, objects of daily and ritual use, architectural elements, fabrics, jewellery, miniatures, costumes, statues and bas-reliefs coming from some of the most important Italian museums and private collections.

The Casa dei Carraresi mostra in Treviso on India will be divided into two sections: 'Classical Art in India' and 'India of the Maharajas' in order to enable visitors to understand a culture that avoids the dualism between the sacred and the profane typical of Western civilizations.

The first part of 'Magie dell'India' - from the second millennium BC until the seventeenth century - will show some fundamental themes of traditional Indian art through reliefs and sculptures in stone, bronze ritual objects and images coming from the religious sphere, with thumbnails of a similar subject.

In the first room of the exhibition, this Indian art gallery will present the four indigenous religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism, alongside those 'imported' - the religion of the Parsees, Christianity and Islam, followed by the rooms devoted to the myths and the great epics, especially the 'Ramayana' and 'Mahabharata' and a room on the relations between India and Greece and the creation of the art of Gandhara. The first section of 'Magie dell'India' will then provide a rich insight into the Hindu pantheon, divided into five meeting rooms, and will end with the representation of the human body and erotic art.

In the second part of the mostra on India in Treviso viewers can admire the rich and eccentric palaces in the Maharajas exhibit: costumes, jewellery, weapons, precious objects, paintings and original miniatures through a large photographic section of the late nineteenth / early twentieth century.

The final part of 'Magie dell'India' will focus on the relations between India and Italy since the Roman times. From the Apostle Thomas to Marco Polo and to Emilio Salgàri, through the course of history the imaginary world of India has impacted on travellers and words.

At Casa dei Carraresi in Treviso the Indian art exhibition awaits you with shimmering colours and precious materials, fascinating legends and priceless works of Indian art. Enjoy a fascinating and exciting excursion at one of the most anticipated Treviso exhibitions in 2013!
