From December 10 will open the exhibition “Egypt Unveiled” created by the European Institute of Restoration. In collaboration with the Art & History Museum of Brussels and the Municipal Administration of Piacenza. The exhibition will see important Egyptian finds including sarcophagi, mummies and objects relating to funerary objects deriving from Belgian collections and Italian museums. One of these is the MANN of Naples. An exhibition that dusts off the magnetic charm of Ancient Egypt, but also on the universe of Egyptian myths and on the beliefs of Egyptian religion. In addition, also the adventure of the ancient grave robbers and the first archaeologists. 


The EUROPA module is an innovative idea of ​​the exhibition: a true restoration laboratory designed for the public. Thus visitors will be able to witness the restoration of some Egyptian sarcophagi live and have direct contact with the restorers. All original pieces, never leaving their showroom. A record show! She had equally record-breaking organization times, having started since July. A job made possible by an authentic team of councilors, Piacenza realities that act as sponsors and the planning of the exhibition.
