Products made by artisans from Quintana Roo will be selling during the next weeks at the Vatican Museums.
The sale will be carried out as part of the show Manos del mundo en el Vaticano (Hands of the World in the Vatican), inaugurated on Wednesday August 29 in the Pinacoteca of the papal galleries.
Giuseppe Bertello, president of the Governorate of Vatican City State, said it is a social initiative in which “everything that is collected from sales goes directly to the artisans.
When we think of Quintana Roo, we think of its beaches, but in the state there is also a population rich in culture and products that they know how to make with textiles, fabrics, natural fibers, leaves and branches.
Carlos Joaquín González, governor of Quintana Roo, invited the people of Rome to enjoy “the flavors, colors and smells” of his state.
Among the pieces that will be offered there are utensils carved in wood and ornaments in basketry, as well as pendants, bracelets and other pieces finely modeled in black coral.
Some of the craftsmen were present at the place weaving and carving live, right there at the Vatican.
