Description

Drawing from a rich and renowned Japanese collection from a venerable museum of Florence Italy, the exhibition features some 80 exquisite objects related to the legendary Samurai warriors and characterize the period from 1185 – 1868 when Japan was ruled by the samurai military class that embodied the ideals of and lived by the code of Bushido.


The exhibition unfolds in sections organized according to the typology of the objects – full suits of armor, helmets, swords, sword guards, saddles to be sure – but also exquisite objects intended for more personal use such as lacquered writing boxes and incense trays; delicate works of art such as screens and scrolls that portray a by-gone way of life. Suggestive graphic panels accompany the objects, providing informative text regarding the samurai, but also enlarging the exquisite details of the craftsmanship hidden in the objects.
