Afghan Gold Treasures
TURIN  •  Museo di Antichità  •  Ongoing
Thanks to this display of no less than 220 items, the exhibition puts the development of Afghan history into perspective, from the Bronze Age to the Kushan Empire. Even though the artefacts displayed have different geographical and historic origins, they also celebrate the continuity, the uniqueness and the wealth of the Afghan heritage, in a region that has been influenced by so many cultures: Iranian and Near Eastern, Indian, Scythian, Chinese and Hellenistic.
