The exhibition “Highlights of Ancient Chinese porcelain” is a rare showcase of 74 precious ceramics of ancient Chinese tradition, valuable evidence of the manufacture China produced between the tenth and nineteenth centuries: the great variety and prosperity of the Song and Yuan period (960-1368); the pottery of the Jingdezhen kilns under the Ming (1368-1644) was produced mainly for the imperial court; up to the latest Qing era (1644-1911), the apex of maximum splendour and maturity of the art.

China, considered as “the land of ceramics”, is the place where the production of porcelain, a precious kind of ceramic, began before any other country in the world. The exhibition will give visitors the chance to be surrounded by traditional Chinese culture through a selection of refined everyday-life objects that attest to the popularity of porcelain in different historic periods: tools for the collection of drinks and food, but also flower pots, oil lamps, brush holders, headrests, objects for rituals, statues of gods, ink holders for writers, objects related to the funeral habits of the time, candlesticks and incense to perfume clothes.
