The exhibition presents for the first time in Italy a group of painted protohistoric objects (IV-III millennium BC), illegally excavated in Baluchistan (south-western Pakistan).
These artefacts, stolen from Pakistan, were seized in 2005 by the Italian Carabinieri Headquarters for the Protection of Cultural Heritage - Department of Monza and returned two years later to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Beside pottery, also metal, stone, and semi-precious stone items are on view.
The exhibition, organized by MNAO in collaboration with the Islamic Republic of Pakistan Embassy and with the support of Eural Gnutti s.p.a., represents a precious opportunity for a first encounter with the cultures that succeeded in Pakistan.
