In 1997, the Institut du Monde Arabe was the first to schedule an exhibition in France exclusively dedicated to the Sudan (Sudan, Kingdoms of the Nile) that presented the Sudanese history from the Neolithic period up to Meroe. A dozen years later this new event confirms the revival of interest in or simply the discovery of the cultural richness of this country.
