Turin discovers Egypt. The genesis of a Museum

This exhibition will display circa 150 objects from the collection of the Museo Egizio of Turin, coming both from the purchases of Savoy family and from excavations carried out by the Museum’s Archaeological Mission, led by the director Ernesto Schiaparelli. Through them and with the support of old pictures, the visitors will not only perceive the extraordinary atmosphere of the adventurous discoveries at the beginning of the 20th Centuty, but also experience moments of daily life in ancient Egypt
