“Jerusalem! Pictures of the Franciscans in the Holy Land”: exhibition in Assisi until 8 November

From 11 April to 8 November 2015 the first public display of a photographic archive of extraordinary historic value will take place, recounting the centuries-long presence of the Franciscan friars in the Holy Land. The archive, consisting of approximately 200 photos, dates from 1885-1887 and is the centerpiece of the exhibition “Jerusalem! Pictures of the Franciscans in the Holy Land” taking place at the Bonacquisti Palace in Assisi (Italy)

The exhibition is organized by the Fondazione Cariperugia Arte and the Centro culturale Aracoeli of the Friars Minor of the Roman Province of Saints Peter and Paul, with the sponsorship of the Commune of Assisi. A number of other organizations have been involved in preparing the exhibition, including Association pro Terra Sancta.

In addition to the historical photos, there will be a multimedia section where visitors will be able to view several videos on the Holy Land and Jerusalem, including a three-dimensional reconstruction of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre produced by Association pro Terra Sancta. These videos are representative of the material to be presented in the multimedia section of the Terra Sancta Museum, whose inauguration is planned for end-2015.

The exhibition continues until 8 November. Opening hours: Tuesday – Thursday, 1400 to 1900; Friday – Sunday, 1200 to 2000; closed Monday. Entry to the exhibition is free.
