The Director General for Public and Cultural Diplomacy of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) Alessandro De Pedys and the Italian Ambassador to Mongolia Giovanna Piccarreta today inaugurated the first exhibition of Caravaggio’s works in Mongolia at the Genghis Khan Museum in Ulanbataar. The event was attended by Mongolia’s Minister of Culture Nomin Chinbat.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is the painting “Mary Magdalene in Ecstasy” and the several stages of its extensive restoration. This field is a key area of collaboration between one of Italy’s sectors of excellence and Mongolia.
