In search of an age-old civilization that made art become its very space for living: a voyage through time and space, from Tunis to the borders of the Sahara.
[Ifriqiya. Thirteen centuries of art and architecture in Tunisia] Located at the border between the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, Tunisia has absorbed and reinterpreted two geographically opposing cultural influences: one from Mesopotamia, through Syria and Egypt, the other from Andalusia, through the lands of the western Berbers. Without betraying the traditions inherited from the Berbers, the Carthaginians, the Romans and the Byzantines, Tunisia has been able to merge all the influences of the past into a unique, original civilization.
The Exhibition Itinerary in Tunisia is a voyage through time and space, covering thirteen centuries of history, art and architecture, from Tunis to the borders of the Sahara, in search of an age-old civilization that made art become its very space for living.
