Italian delegation visits Nantong Museum
An Italian delegation led by Luigi De Mossi, mayor of Siena, and Francesco Frati, rector of the University of Siena, visited the Nantong Museum in Nantong, East China’s Jiangsu province, on Oct 19.
During their visit, the delegation attended an exhibition on Nantong’s ancient history and visited the former residence of Zhang Jian, a famous industrialist and top scholar who lived in the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
The delegation was impressed by the museum’s collection and its traditional Chinese gardens.
The delegation also attended a meeting with the heads of the museum, where the two sides signed a memo on cultural exchange. They agreed to cooperate in holding exhibitions, training workers, academic studies, and the development of cultural and tourism projects.
