On 23 February 2017, the Museo delle Civiltà – Museo preistorico etnografico “L. Pigorini” will be inaugurating the collaborative exhibition “The Making of a Point of View. Spotlights on the Indonesian and Malaysian collections”, organized as part of the European SWICH - Sharing a world of Inclusion, Creativity and Heritage project.

The exhibition "The Making of a Point of View" presents four independent installations; each of which offers different points of view on a part of the heritage of the Museo delle Civiltà. Along with the usual display of objects, which were collected during the geographical explorations of the nineteenth century, we find a mixture of the languages of contemporary art, autobiographical narration and a historical and museological approach making it the starting point for creative, cognitive, formative and rediscovery processes. The interweaving of these elements sets in motion a process that surpasses the linearity of a classical exhibition.
