“Open a Door to Israel,” an exhibit comprised of nine huge door-shaped screens that visitors can open to learn about different aspects of Israel, debuted at the Tel Aviv Port in December and will begin a worldwide tour this month at the Vitoriano Museum in Rome. The exhibit will continue on to Germany, France, Russia, South Korea, Japan, China and the United States.

Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry for Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy collaborated on “Open a Door to Israel,” which offers peeks into the country’s heritage, music scene, family life, education system and innovation. It also includes a multimedia show on Israeli creativity, synchronized with robotic screening technology.

“Our goal is to present Israel’s vibrant society and core values in a personal and relatable way to audiences around the world,” said Arthur Koll, deputy director general for public affairs at the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
