Opening time and fees

On the occasion of 8 March, the Fort of Bard pays homage to all women with a photographic exhibition promoted in collaboration with Il Tucano Viaggi Ricerca. From 8 to 17 March, the rooms of the Cannoniere welcome the exhibition Women, ornament and tradition.

The exhibition shows the importance that the hairstyle, the ornament, the decoration of the body have in the tradition of the African or Asian peoples, the Andes or the Amazon, as well as the clothing. They become a means of communication that exceeds purely aesthetic function, they represent a form of language giving information about the person, indicating the ethnic group or the tribe of belonging, the age class or social position, the wealth or the role of the family. The ornament can sometimes perform, during festivals and ceremonies, ritual and propitiatory functions. The different images allow a silent contact with women from different countries, protagonists of difficult realities in Africa, Asia and South America.

The photographs come from the “Tucano Viaggi Ricerca” archive, a travel organization that has always been supporting a concept of intelligent tourism that respects different cultures.
