Nur englische Beschreibung:

The exhibition curated by the Conservatory of the Mudec, is one of the first in Italy dedicated to representation of men and women of African descent and on slavery in northern Italy between 16th and 19th century.

Through the display of works such as paintings and sculptures, but also documentary testimonies, coming from important public and private institutions, the exhibition represents an attempt to identify the ways of representation of the different, unveiling canons and clichés and it is intended to provide a stimulus to investigate the phenomenon of slavery and to figure out these peoples’ identity.

The exhibition path is articulated in sections dedicated to different themes. The first one, Shadows without voices, presents servants in the shadow of their masters, served to reinforce their image of wellness. The prototype of this type of composition is the Portrait of Laura Dianti with Page by Titian: this iconography enjoys widespread fortune, as witnesses the following engraving by Sadeler and the series of paintings, which ends with the Portrait of Count Manara with his Ethiopian servant (1842), guiding image of the exhibition.
