Nigra sum sed formosa. Religion and Beauty in Christian Ethiopia. Open until 10 May 2009.

First sizable Italian exhibition dedicated to one of the oldest Christian civilizations in Africa.

The show, presented as an organic and fascinating story, revolves around a few historical personalities, including the celebrated Queen of Sheba – who was the inspiration for the famous verse Nigra sum sed formosa (Latin for “I am black but comely”) in “Song of Songs” – the great kings Lalibala and Zar’a Ya’qob; Venetian painter Nicolò Brancaleon, who according to documents was at the court of King Eskender towards the end of the 15th century.

The show offers articles of extraordinary historical and artistic importance, precious and rarely shown evidence: icons, crosses, magic scrolls, illuminated codices, engravings, cartographic masterpieces – like Fra Mauro’s Mappamondo, rare books and models. Works and finds have been lent, often for the first time, by private collectors and museums, national and international.

The exhibition, with an impressive multimedia section, is curated by G. Barbieri, G. Fiaccadori and M. Di Salvo.

Presented by the University of Venice at Ca’ Foscari, Banca Popolare FriulAdria - Crédit Agricole and the Veneto Region.

Catalogue published by Edizioni Terraferma.

Open 10am to 6pm; closed Tuesday.

Admission, € 7.00; disc., € 5.00 (under 15 and over 60).
