Journeys between East and West

Based on one of the world's largest private collections of game boards, this exhibition will address the migration and exchange of games between East and West. It will focus on this type of Asian production for the European market, carried out from the sixteenth till the mid-nineteenth century, and on the presence of Western games in Asia.
Thus, "Crossing Games. Journeys between East and West" will not only be a unique opportunity to understand how games became a mirror of World History but also a reflection of the relations established between Europe and the East since the fifteenth century.
