This exhibition was produced by both the National Institute of Heritage in Tunis and the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (Mucem) in Marseille. Held under the patronage of the President of the Tunisian Republic, this new version was a cultural response to the tragic attacks at the Bardo Museum in March 2015. It was the first exhibition after the attacks. Contents were composed by Tunisian and French collections.
