ROME — Chinese art has landed in Rome and risks never leaving the historical Roman palace of Palazzo Venezia.

The Beijing government will, at least for the next five years, manage an area in a Roman museum with an ancient history. After offering Italy 1,000 square meters in the new Museum overlooking Tienanmen Square, the People’s Republic wishes to have an equally large space in the building from which Benito Mussolini used to speak. It is precisely from the entrance of this palazzo that one is going to perhaps access "China’s Museum in Rome”.

Thus China will bring to Rome ancient and contemporary works of art. An interesting event that will build a bridge between Italian and Chinese art.
