Sulla Via della Seta



Over two thousand years ago merchants, pilgrims and soldiers braved the soaring mountains and hazardous deserts of central Asia to trade in luxury goods, to unearth sacred texts and to encounter and dominate distant peoples, leading to the gradual creation of a network of routes grouped together under the evocative name of the "Silk Road". The exhibition retraces the long journey between east and west from the 7th to the 14th centuries AD, illustrating the numerous different cultures along the Silk Road route with reconstructions of four iconic cities: Chang'an, today's Xi'an, the cosmopolitan capital of the Chinese Tang Dynasty; Turfan, an oasis city in the Gobi Desert; Samarkand, a major centre of trade and culture; and Baghdad, capital of the Muslim world and seat of the Caliphate.
