At the end of the large gallery of the Louvre museum, there is a collection of works from elsewhere. Ritual masks, reliquary protectors, archaeological finds, treasures from the ancient kingdoms of Africa. This unique visit is designed under the sign of the power of objects in African art. Through form, materials or origin, these works are charged with a power that is not only magical, religious, political but also spectacularly aesthetic.
Danilo Lovisi, our cultural mediator, accompanies you during this meeting with the masterpieces of African art conserved in the Louvre.
Come on Friday, February 14, 2020 at 7 pm for this trip in the heart of Paris.

MANZEÙ: the route, the great path, in Medumba, the traditional language of West Cameroon.
Manzeù is a cycle of guided tours: a sensitive journey through Parisian museums.
What bridges, what paths are to be created – and crossed – when discovering another culture?
Our aim is to offer the public cultural experiences based on sharing of knowledge from cultures, especially non-European and particularly African ones. These visiting experiences give the right value to these works of art, textiles and texts.
