The Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia will be exploring Inca secrets in the new exhibition entitled “Inca in Brescia: Live the Legend - Origin and Mysteries of the Golden Civilization”, which runs from 4th December to June 27th next year. The Inca exhibition to be held in the northern Italian city of Brescia will attract a large number of visitors.

That is according to Andrea Arcai, a city councillor, who said that the event is 'one of the most important' in the northern part of the country in the coming months.

Through the mysteries of the civilizations which followed one another in Peru from the XV century B.C. to the well-known Inca people, attendees will be able to enjoy an emotional exhibition with the typical sounds and music characterizing those people, more than 250 finds, a total immersion in the magic still shrouding ancient pre-Columbian civilizations.

The Santa Giulia Museum is a fascinating museum set in a historic Benedictine convent, and the permanent collection includes relics dating from the prehistoric and Celtic period, with objects including porcelain, carvings, coins and wax seals. The Inca exhibition will focus on the ancient Peruvian culture.

Some of the items on display date to the 15th century BC onwards and are associated with civilizations that existed in Peru hundreds of years prior to the Incans.

'We are opening one of the most important exhibitions in northern Italy and in the world which is about the Inca culture,' said Mr Arcai.

He added: 'We are getting paintings coming from Mexico and Spain. It is not only [thanks to] the cooperation of South America but also with the most important museums in South America.'
