The catalogue of the exhibition “The Fragility of the Sign. Rock Art of Africa in the Italian Institute of Prehistory and Protohistory Archive” is the first volume of a new series to be published by the Italian Institute of Prehistory and Protohistory, aimed at a much broader public than the narrow circle of specialists to which its publications are generally addressed. Various elements have been conceived to better achieve this objective, such as the graphic layout designed by Andrea De Pascale and the captivating illustrative material, which is extremely inclusive and attentively selected. The illustrations accompany scientific texts which are written by experts but in such a way as to be accessible and particularly interesting for the greater public as well.
The Institute’s purpose in this new series is to contribute not only to the furtherance of study, in line with its statutory mission, but also to the wider dissemination of knowledge about the prehistoric heritage at a time when its extraordinary richness and its importance for the history of humanity appear to be greatly undervalued.
