Failla Donatella, with essays by Roberto Ciarla, Alessandra Giumlia-Mair and Nishida Hiroko

The Chiossone Museum collections attest to the Japanese tradition of gathering Chinese bronze vessels during the 13th-19th centuries, initially  by Buddhist clergy,  then by warriors, masters of chanoyu and of flower arrangement, and finaly by senchajin and bunjin, admirers of Chinese civilization.
