In an increasingly disconnected world, we believe in creating connectionsthrough cultural relations. We do this by bringing people together from different communitiesand cultures to share knowledge and ideas with each other to make a positive differencein our societies. All our programmes aim to build engagement, understanding and trustbetween people. And that is our contribution towards making our world a safer place tolive in. We have been active in Kazakhstan since 1994, and work with educators, learners, professionals and artists in the eld of English, education, exams and the arts. Let’s begin with a known axiom: the formation of  an independent statebegins with study andcomprehension of the past, historical experience and the culture and traditionsof the people. Museumestablishments play a veryimportant role from thispoint of view.The Museum of Archeology at the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republicof Kazakhstan openedin 1973 at the initiativeof the First Secretary of the Central Committeeof Communist Party of Kazakhstan D.A.Kunaev asan object of storage and constant scientic study of  archaeological materials of the whole Kazakhstan onthe basis of the Academy of Sciences.It has been known in theinternational arena since1946, and has a rich fund of unique collections, a specialroom for products madeof precious metals and has highly skilled experts in theelds of archeology and museology. Archaeologicalcollections from several years of excavations form the the basis of themuseum. Among them youcan see unique materialswhich have universal value, from excavations of burial grounds of the Bronze Age,a collection that belongs toSaka and Wusun periods, and nds from ceramics, glasses, coins from excavation from Medieval cities like Otrar, Taraz,Turkestan and Talgar. Unlikespecialised state museumswhere collections from accidental nds, treasures and acquisitions can be collected, exhibits in the Museum of Archeology arespecial and incomparableby their collections found during excavations in funeral constructions, ancientcities and settlements. TheMuseum of Archeologywas formed as a resultof several generations of Kazakh scientists’ works since the 20th century: it stores not only historicalmemories of our people, but also personies the achievements of Kazakhscience and its stagesof development.

It is “Altyn Adam”: culture of steppes from the Bronze Age till the Great Migration” which has been exhibited in Italy since April 25, 1998.Naples, the capital of the region of Campania, isone of the ancient cities of southern Italy, the city of ancient and deep culturethat got its glory during theAncient Roman Period.The organisers of  the exhibition, under theleadership of the Embassyof Kazakhstan in Italy, were: The municipality of Naples,departments of Culture andSecurity Management of thearchaeological heritage of Naples and Caserta, Institute of the East and Department of researches of Asia inNaples, and from Kazakhstanparty – Margulan Instituteof Archeology, Ministry of  Education and Science of  the Republic of Kazakhstan,Ministry of Culture,Information and PublicConsent of the Republic of Kazakhstan.While opening the exhibition, the ambassador of KazakhstanO.Suleymenov noted thatthe young state Kazakhstancan’t yet be praised byits golden present, but isdeservedly proud of itsgolden past. Kazakhstan is a country with centuries- old history and was acrossroads of trading roads between Europe and Asia throughout thecenturies. The legendarySilk Road with its bravetravellers, including Italian and European merchants, has opened up again withpromising prospects.Kazakhstan, undoubtedly,will play a more important and role in Europe and Asia.The Head of the Department of Archeologyin Naples and CasertaStefano De Caro noted thatthe ancient traditions of the Kazakh people, their relationship with European culture became more clear,concrete and real for Italians. The exhibition “Altyn Adam”with its exhibits belonging to 2000 BC til the I centuryAD is clear evidence of that. It is remarkable that this Kazakh exhibition was shown near other halls of theNational Museum such as the exhibition of antiquities of  Pompeii.Despite objectivehistorical distinctions of the exposed exhibits betweenWestern and Easterncultures, this exhibition opens not only a classicalantiquity of the steppepeople, but also allowspeople to understand theroots and development of today’s sovereign state of Kazakhstan.  6   7 “The exhibition of the historical treasures of Kazakhstan in Italy becamea great cultural eventwhich brought togethertwo nations. Undoubtedly,the mutual knowledgeof cultures of these twocountries will become anecessary preconditionand guarantee for a fruitfuldevelopment of our relationsin all areas” said the city mayor of Naples Gundo D’Agustino. The exhibition “Altyn Adam” was placed in fourhalls of the Palace of theNational ArchaeologicalMuseum in Italy, including more than 600 exhibits, many of which were shown for the rst time outside the Republic of Kazakhstan.Thanks to the skill of the Italian designers, expositions from the State andArchaeological museums of Kazakhstan were elaboratelydisplayed. Ancient jewels of silver, bronze and preciousstones, funeral ornaments,weapons and armoury of horsemen were arranged chronologically, reecting the integrity of the ancientapplied art of the steppepeople who occupiedthe territory of modern Kazakhstan. The “Golden Warrior”, treasure of theancient culture, delightedthe Italians and tourists fromother countries who visited this exhibition.The exhibition of the archaeological values of  Kazakhstan “Altyn Adam” inNaples was the third nal stage of demonstration of the exhibition in Italy.The exhibition was shownin Rome from September- November 1998 with suchguests as the President of the Republic of KazakhstanN.A.Nazarbayev. The rst days of theKazakh exhibition drew the attention of art judgesin Italy who were able toappreciate the creativity of the geniuses of the past. The exhibition “AltynAdam” became a signicant event in the culturalcooperation betweenKazakhstan and Italy thatspiritually united these twonations.The opening ceremony of  the international exhibitionof the Gyeongju WorldCulture EXPO 2000 washeld in Gyeongju, the capital and cultural centre of Silla,in September, 2000 under the name “Breath of a new millennium”.The purpose of the exhibition was to show acultural exchange and the development of relationsbetween countries whichwere settling down on the route of the Great Silk Road.
