Russian Handicrafts Exhibited in Rome in Framework of "Russian Seasons"
April 6, 2018 18:33


The exposition is divided into two parts: the first one demonstrates tourist souvenirs and attributes of ethnographic tourism, and the second one is dedicated to Orthodox art.
"Beauty in Diversity", the exhibition of art souvenirs from the regions of Russia has opened in the Russian Center of Science and Culture of Rome. The opening ceremony with the participation of the Director of the Tourism Department of the RF Ministry of Culture, Olga Yarilova, took place during the "Russian Seasons" festival on Thursday.
Two Part Exhibition
Russia has unique historical traditions that reflect the stylistic features of art crafts, technologies and secrets of which are passed on from generation to generation. The arts and crafts presented here include Gzhel porcelain, Vologda lace, national embroidery and toys, folk costume, and items of metal, fur, leather, and wood. The exposition is divided into two parts. The first of them demonstrates the most vivid examples of tourist souvenirs and the attributes of ethnographic tourism, whereas the second part is dedicated to Orthodox Christian art.

Products by master of metal-inlaid woodworking Magomedali Magomedaliyev from Dagestan make a bright example of indigenous arts and crafts. The Kaliningrad Region is represented by unique items from natural amber extracted there, which the Italians know and appreciate highly. The exposition of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Ugra - contains items created by folk craftsmen, such as birch bark products, as well as beads and metal jewelry. The Tula Region introduces traditional famous souvenirs, such as the Tula samovar, Tula harmonica, Tula gingerbread, Belevsky pastille, Belevsky lace, and Filimonovo toys. Among other regions of Russia that have also presented their traditional crafts at the exposition there is Lipetsk, Sverdlovsk, Leningrad, and Tyumen Regions, as well as the Republic of Tatarstan and Karelia.
“Knowing that the Italians are so appreciative of art and the handicrafts that underlie all of fashion, and understand it as good as nowhere else in the world, it is here that we decided to show those arts and crafts, which are repeatedly passed on from one generation to another in different regions of Russia,” - Olga Yarilova pointed out.
The exhibition opening ceremony was accompanied with a concert of folk music bands. The concert featured Russian folk songs in traditional performance as well as in modern instrumental arrangement.
