Museo Nazionale d'Arte Orientale

The Museo Nazionale d'Arte Orientale originated from a group of artifacts formerly belonging to the Istituto Italiano per il Medio ed Estremo Oriente, presently the Istituto Italiano per l'Africa e l'Oriente. The Ancient Near East section includes the important collections of Yemeni antiquities collected by the Honorary Governor of Eritrea Corrado Zoli and by the archaeologist Cesare Ansaldo.
