The exhibition cycle “Altrarti” is planned and designed by the Museo delle Culture in collaboration with international scientific institutions. The yearly exhibitions are medium-term projects which may be repeated and displayed in other museums. Altrarti is a neologism created by the Museo delle Culture to convey the nature of its temporary exhibition cycle. Altrarti focuses on the various values of a peculiar expression of art and culture and presents the results of a yearly research project on a specific issue. This research intends to overcome the typical barriers of traditional categories, through an in-depth and multifaceted analysis of ethnic artworks. These studied from as many different angles as possible: from the interpretation of its form to the analysis of its meaning, value and context. The research aims to explain the complexity of this kind of art, placing creativity and art in the much wider context of cultural expression.
