Show sight on map

The Indios - Capuchin Friars of Umbria Missionary Museum in the Amazon was founded in 2011, but in Assisi a museum dedicated to Capuchin missionaries had existed since 1973. The creative spirit came from Father Luciano Matarazzi, a friar passionate about the Amazon who built the Indios Missionary Museum through gifts that the missionaries brought him shuttling between the Brazilian region of Alto Solimões and Assisi: stuffed animals, butterflies, musical instruments, masks and handicrafts of various kinds.
