From July 2nd to July 16th, Feng Jicai Research Institute of Literature and Art at Tianjin University would hold the Global Exhibition of Chinese Wood-block New Year Picture in Italy. This exhibition included three shows to be held respectively in Palazzo Risolo in Spezia, the Confucius Institute at Venice University and the Confucius Institute at the University of Florence on July 2nd, July 4th and July 9th. During these shows, Chinese new year woodblock carvings and the new year culture would be introduced to overseas communities and be popularized through exhibitions and academic exchanges.

The study of Chinese new year wood-block pictures and the new year culture has always been the significant academic contents of the Feng Jicai Research Institute of Literature and Art. Since the establishment of the Chinese Wood-block New Year Picture Study Center at the institute in 2006, faculty members and students of the institute had been deeply involved in the key project of saving the Chinese folk cultural legacy—the ten-year saving and overall investigation of Chinese woodblock new year pictures. They also conducted the researching, filing and publishing work on the oral history of the successors. They traveled around all the original places of the new year pictures throughout the country and interviewed and recorded over 50 representative successors of the new year wood-block pictures, yielding significant academic fruits.

The Global Exhibition of Chinese New Year Wood-block Pictures in Italy was the first overseas exhibition held by the institute, gaining full support from the Chinese Embassy in Italy, the municipal government of Spezia of Italy, the Confucius Institute at Venice University, the Confucius Institute at the University of Florence and the Associazione Culturale Il Filo di Seta

Themed “Paper Horse Culture: the Spiritual World of Chinese Folks”, the first stop kicked off, which would last for two weeks. This exhibition was a part of the Chinese Culture Week in Italy. Many visitors who get to know Chinese culture for the first time would visit the exhibition.
