This hall is dedicated to magic, and to those magic jewels that, both now and in the past, gave protection to their owners and those who wore them. Creating this selection, I decided to explore the topic of exchanges and contact points between different cultures and places, separated in both time and space. This resulted from considerations I made on the contemporary world, because at this moment in history we tend to underline the differences among people, but if we consider the common roots linking ancient and contemporary populations we see that many aspects point to connection and unity.
