Here, in fact, the Museum has recently curated an exhibition dedicated to the costumes and the material culture of the Italian regions, in fact the core of the collection of the National Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions, formed with the Italian Ethnographic Exhibition, held in Rome in 1911 to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Unification of Italy.
The evening of music has a charitable purpose: the proceeds of the show will be used to finance projects for children in areas affected by the floods last autumn, Sardinia, Basilicata and Calabria”.
