Arti delle Mani Nere – The Italian Forum of African Art Collectors

Online since May 2011, the Arti delle Mani Nere* forum is the online community where (mainly) Italian collectors gather to discuss African Art (*freely translatable to Art of the black hands). Its creator, Brescia-based Elio Revera, has succeeded in creating a lively forum where many critical but constructive discussions take place.

Since the majority of the posts are in Italian, it’s also a good place to practice your languages. Only one part of the forum, “Love driven choices“, is in English, presenting objects from the forum’s members private collections.

As is stated on the forum, “L’unico modo per moltiplicare l’amore, è dividerlo con gli altri” (the only way to multiply love is to share it with others), a goal I gladly endorse and support.
