Egypt. Three Millennia on the Nile
Presented as a North American exclusive, Egypt. Three Millennia on the Nile is an immersive exhibition, both grandiose and poetic, showcasing over 300 objects from the collection of the Museo Egizio in Turin (Italy), one of the largest collections in the world!
Covering 3,000 years of history, from the very beginning to the Roman conquest, the exhibition will take an up-to-date look at Ancient Egyptian civilization, putting a human face on the age-old, strongly hierarchical society, whose backbone was formed by the majestic Nile River.
Fishermen, artisans, farmers, scribes, priests, and pharaohs… learn more about the organization of Egyptian society and power, as well as the central role that common people played in the emergence of this remarkable, extraordinarily long-lasting civilization. Work tools, everyday items, and jewelry will be displayed alongside monumental sculptures and statues, sarcophagi, stelae, and mummies. A must-see!
An exhibition produced by Pointe-à-Callière, in collaboration with the Museo Egizio.
