At the moment in which every man questions himself about his
relationship with the world and the nature, the Nomad
Spirit exhibition invites us to reflect upon the values
of nomadic people such as the Wodaabes and Tuaregs of Sahara,
the Mongols and Kazakhs of Asian steppes or the Siberian Nenets
Presented as one entity, the nomad shepherds give us an extraordinary
answer to our time uneasiness: the example of a life based
on balance with ecosystems and harmony with nature and other
This exhibition deals with the nomadism emphasizing
the nomad shepherds’ unique way of life, which beyond cultural
appearances is based on a common spirit and on common values.
The Nomad Spirit exhibition talks about man and his
values, about his deep link with Earth and Nature.
It is a journey in the pursuit of a more authentic human dimension
among the nomads who are the guardians of behaviours and values
that are the basis of the human being and from which we might
draw out inspiration for a new way to consider our relationship
with the Other and Nature.
Earth, Nature and Environment, Humanity, Values
are the core themes of this exhibition. Other themes
are: the environment conservation, the resources sustainable
use, the biodiversity, the mobility, and of course,
the nomads’ integration in the modernity and the importance
of passing on the heritage of traditional knowledge and values
such as respect, share, reciprocal aid and solidarity, which
are the basis of human relationships.
The result of a long-term work that for more
than 25 years has taken the Baldizzones into the nomads’ territories,
this exhibition is an invitation:
- to become conscious that nomadic people who thanks to their
traditional knowledge have been surviving for ages in harsh
environments, could prove to be precious allies to modern
man in the preservation and conservation of environment and
- to reflect on a new way to consider and approach the world.
