In this regard, Vice-Minister of Culture and Sports of Kazakhstan Aktoty Raimkulova and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Italy to Kazakhstan Stefano Ravagnan discussed the organization of the cultural project at EXPO-2017 in Astana.

A. Raimkulova expressed confidence that the organization of the exhibition of one of the most famous museums in the world Uffizi at EXPO-2017 in Astana will be a wonderful decoration of the cultural program of the international specialized exhibition.

“We are honored to welcome guests from Italy – the birthplace of the classical art of the Renaissance, as well as many prominent figures in the history of world culture. I want to note the willingness of the Kazakh side to listen to and discuss a variety of proposals related to one of the leaders in the field of museums as the Uffizi Gallery”, A. Raimkulova stated.

Stefano Ravagnan thanked the Kazakh colleagues for the warm welcome and constant commitment to strengthen and expand cultural cooperation between Kazakhstan and Italy.

“Astana has one of the youngest, but already successful museums, which in the future will certainly be a center for art with a worldwide reputation. I think that close cooperation of the National Museum of Kazakhstan with the “elders” in the field of museums as the Uffizi Gallery will bring us mutual benefits. I want to assure that we are ready to assist you”, the Ambassador said.
