The art of ceramics was perhaps the most important expression of Chinese art. Nothing is as famous as Chinese ceramics. While objects of bronze, jade, and even paintings were reserved for the privileged, ceramics were the domain of all peoples, and it spread throughout the world.
Porcelain is one of the greatest discoveries of the Chinese people. Over seven thousand years ago, the artisans of various ethnic Chinese groups were already able to produce colorful pottery, functional and attractive in appearance. Since then, they continued to produced pottery of all kinds, which have a high artistic level, and well-defined style, typically Chinese.
Both the ceramics and its production were later brought outside China, thus making the production of ceramics, one of the great gifts that this society has given to the world.
Of the over 5.000 coins, the “Rossi Scalzi collection” is exhibited at the Museum, held in an elegant, ingenious, hand-painted wood container built in China.
Among the thousands of Chinese coins that the Xaverians have collected in the early decades of the 1900, there were others, which came to be classified as "good luck charms", which had the power to control hostile forces, and allow us to buy luck and success.
