MAFoS - Museum Archive of Historic Photography
Donated in 2006 by MariaBoccassino, daughter of Renato Boccassino (1904-1976), ethnologist and Director of the Prehistoric Ethnological “Luigi Pigorini” Museum in Rome. It consists of a conspicuous number of negatives on film and, to a lesser extent, of corresponding positives. These document the Ugandan population of Acioli, with whom Boccassino carried out an ethnological exhibition in 1933-34. The museum also conserves a part of Boccassino’s written autograph, used as a deep study of the images.
