About
The Italian Cultural Institute of Nairobi, in collaboration with the National Museums of Kenya and with the support of the Embassy of Italy, launched in 2016 two projects in the field of Archeology, with the aim of engaging Italian excellence in Archeology and Cultural Heritage Management, to preserve and enhance Kenya’s historical and cultural heritage, as part of the actions to promote the development of sustainable tourism and in collaboration with the competent Kenyan Institutions.

In the first phase of project implementation – January and March 2016 – surveys were made in the areas concerned, and in particular:

a. Turkana Region / Rocky Paintings: Surveys at the sites of Loiyangalani (southwest) and Lokori (along the Kerio River) coordinated by Prof. Savino Di Lernia (University of Rome-La Sapienza) carried out in collaboration with the National Museum of Kenya;

b. Malindi / Mombasa Coast: Terrestrial Survey of Prof. Sebastiano Tusa, in collaboration with the National Museum of Malindi, in the areas facing the most significant underwater archaeological sites, in order to identify the possible location of a future marine archaeological park.

About
Love can be considered a state of mind that only exists within a spiritual space. It is a feeling that is neither visible nor tangible. Love has been expressed in various ways through generations; it is said to transcend all senses and to reside in one’s life and soul.

In this exhibition that opened to the public on 14 February, St. Valentine’s Day, we celebrate love with paintings, photography, sculpture as well as objects and stories from our museum collection.

Dates: Until October 31, 2016
Venue: the National Museum of Kenya
Time: 9 am – 5 pm
Tickets: Normal Museum Rates Apply

The photographs that make-up this exhibition were shot over a period of fifty-six years, (1952 – 2008), by Sir Mohinder Dhillon, a Kenyan news camera man. The photographs allow us to travel with Mohinder back in time and eavesdrop on history, reminding us of our past and the individuals and events that helped shape our world.

“Looking back over the more than 83 years I have spent in the world; I cannot help but feel a sense of wonder. Did I really do all these things? Go to all these places? Meet all these people? How, as a simple village boy from Punjab who never even finished school, did I end up travelling the globe, dodging bullets to make a living by shooting thousands of meters of film in some of the world’s most dangerous trouble spots?” – Sir Mohinder Dhillon, October 2016.
