150 years of Anthropology and Ethnology
**Update** (in Italian)
Around the 150 years of the Museum of Anthropology and Ethnology of Florence, the first in Italy, 2020 is a year dotted with round tables, shows, meetings and tales dedicated to the stories and collections of the Museum, with an active look at the present.
«We are considering all points of view»: from this primordial idea by Paolo Mantegazza, founder of the Museum in 1869, in the 150 years of development of the collections the testimony of the richness of the diversity of peoples has matured. Each event will thus be a journey, a continuous dialogue with the stories of the museum and with the diversity that characterise it.
