Welcome on my blog!
This year the Egyptian museum was reopened after a great renovation and I was so excited to visit it. Ancient Egyptian culture is very fascinating and in this particular time I think that it’s a big chance having such an amazing place here in Italy.
On their site you can find an amazing description that I’ve loved to read:
“The Museo delle Antichità Egizie is the only museum other than the Cairo Museum that is dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture. Many international scholars, since the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs Jean-François Champollion, who came to Turin in 1824, spend much time pouring over the collections. It was Champollion who famously wrote, “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin”.
The collections that make up today’s Museum were enlarged by the excavations conducted in Egypt by the Museum’s archaeological mission between 1900 and 1935 (a period when finds were divided between the excavators and Egypt).”
