“Transforming the Egyptian Museum in Cairo: An Egyptian European Partnership” is a lecture presenting updates on the master plan in support of the re-organization of the iconic Egyptian Museum in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, following the reallocation of much of its content to a number of new museums in Cairo and around Egypt. The lecture is organized by the Museo Egizio in Turin and forms part of the Museo e Ricerca events series.
The project Transforming the Egyptian Museum in Cairo saw Museo Egizio leading a consortium of European museums including the Ägyptische Papyrussamlung of Berlin, the British Museum, the Louvre, and the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden of Leiden to draw a comprehensive masterplan to support the re-organization of the iconic Tahrir museum. Egyptologists and museum specialists Heba Abd el Gawad, Irene Morfini, and Corinna Rossi will present the work that is about to be completed, the challenges that this project had to face, the criteria that were identified to suggest the project of re-display, and the preliminary results of the conservation carried out on select objects.
The lecture is taking place online on Thursday the 27th of January and will be broadcasted via YouTube. To access it click here. For further information, contact Museo Egizio ([email protected], +11 44 06 903 Monday to Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Italian time).
