Photographic Exhibition on Vietnamese Pagodas
Until Dec 31 2018

Nicola pays a special attention to ancient pagodas with rich history that still preserve the original architectural features such as But Thap, Pho Minh and , Thien Mu Pagodas...

Through the exhibition the French photographer wants to perpetuate the beauty of cultural heritage and to send to Vietnamese and those who love Vietnamese culture a message, “Pagodas and temples are a typical cultural feature that is worth preserving.” He also hopes that the interest in Vietnamese pagodas will lead to the application of scientific methods and knowledge in preservation of spiritual heritage.
