Until the next 2nd October it can be visited, in CaixaForum of Barcelona, the exhibition "Ming. L’imperi daurat". It is about a showing of objects related to Ming dynasty, that governed the Chinese Empire since XIV century to XVII. The objects are from the museo de Nanquín.
Between them we must highlight the 坤輿萬國全圖 (Kunyu Wanguo Quantu), the first Chinese World Map of european type. It was elaborated by Matteo Ricci in 1602 because of a petition from Chinese emperor. The map, of 366 times 152 cm., has a lot of printings and versions. This that we can see at the exhibition is one of 25 that were painted by hand.
