The Exhibition is the result of a close international
co-operation carried out in Namibia in the 1996, in occasion
of the Swakopmund International Rock Art Congress, August
97, centred on the study of Rock Art in the North-West
of the African Country.
Particularly was surveyed the archaeological sites of
the Namib Desert and savannah and the Rock Art site of
the Brandberg, Erongo Mountains, Twyfelfontein and Spitzkuppe,
this last partially destroyed by granite mining.
The Namibian Rock Art is very important for the history
of the Africa: is dated between 5000 and 2000 years ago.
After Pinerolo, the Exhibition will touring in Europe
and America, and finally, in Africa, Namibia.
"The Exhibition is available for
University, Museums and Institutions."
