    What to Expect

    The experience, lasting about an hour, takes the visitor through a narrative of rites of passage and their role in the growth and formation of individuals.
    The tour brings together and presents some profound aspects of precolonial African culture. Through the Mask, whose strength derives from the emotion it is able to arouse in everyone as an interpreter of the invisible world, we will go on a discovery of that unknown Africa that has not come down to us.
    It will be an opportunity to learn about the founding values of that era, which allowed people to live in symbiosis with Nature, considered a source of nourishment and not a “resource.”

    1 hour The Experience

    Audiences will have the valuable opportunity to immerse themselves in a tour led by Mohamed BA, a Senegalese griot who has been living and working in Italy for 20 years now, an intercultural mediator, trainer, educator, actor and theater playwright. He is a researcher and bearer of values, cultures and traditions, which he transforms into experiences that connect his being African first, and “Senegaliano” (Senegalese and Italian) then, with the best of the territory that hosts him. He does this with passion, determination, and professionalism.
