The Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza Memorial in Congo and Cameroon's National Museum are planning a partnership to promote cultural heritage in the two Central African countries.

Belinda Ayessa, director general of the Brazza Memorial, proposed the collaboration during a recent visit to Cameroon. She said the partnership would allow for exchanges of expertise and help to further enhance the cultural heritage of both nations.

"We want to benefit from the renowned expertise of the National Museum of Yaounde," Ayessa said. "However, we also have something to offer. It would also be important for local executives to immerse themselves in the Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza Memorial."

The Brazza Memorial is a tourist site in Congo that traces the history of the country. It is dedicated to Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, the Italian-born French explorer who founded Brazzaville, the capital of Congo, in 1880.

Cameroon's National Museum is located in Yaounde, the country's capital. It houses a collection of artifacts and exhibits that showcase the history and culture of Cameroon.

The partnership between the two museums is expected to include exchanges of exhibitions, research collaboration, and training programs.

The two countries have a long history of cultural cooperation. In 2014, the National Museum of Cameroon received a painting in tribute to Savorgnan de Brazza, donated by Idanna Pucci, the explorer's great-niece and heiress. The work, entitled "Hommage aux traditions: l'unité dans la diversité," is a polyptych of 12 paintings by Congolese artists.
