Mapping Cyprus traces the unique cultural history of Cyprus, an island that has variously been under Byzantine, Frankish, Venetian, Ottoman and British rule. The position of the island--situated at the eastern end of the Mediterranean and at the crossroads of three continents--has long contributed to its atypical heritage. In Mapping Cyprus, manuscripts, paintings, maps, prints and icons are used to depict the exchange between Europe and the Middle East, with particular attention being paid to the medieval era, the Lusignan dynasty, the Venetian period and sacred art, which is represented by more than 50 icon paintings.

Pubblicato in occasione della Mostra tenuta a Bruxelles, Centre for Fine Arts, nel 2012. Testi in inglese, olandese, francese. The exhibition Mapping Cyprus. Crusaders, Merchants and Explorers (Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels) traces the cultural history of Cyprus, an island which has been under Byzantine, Frankish, Venetian, Ottoman and British rule. The atypical position of the island, situated at the eastern end of the Mediterranean and at the crossroads of three continents, has encouraged the establishment of a unique heritage. Manuscripts, paintings, maps, prints and icons reflect these constant exchanges between Europe and the Middle East. The exhibition gives particular attention to the medieval era, the Lusignan dynasty, the Venetian period and finally to sacred art, represented here through more than fifty icons, most of which are leaving the island for the first time.
