“Under Nut’s Sky. Divine Egypt”

What is hidden behind the art and spirituality of ancient Egypt that still attract us today?

The exhibition, which comprises more than 150 works, offers an entrance into Egypt’s divine world through the display of bronze, stone, and faïence sculptures, votive reliefs, sarcophagi, mummies, and elements of the funeral trappings that accompanied the deceased in the afterlife.

Now open with a refreshed itinerary, this mesmerizing show features additional artifacts from the collections of the City of Milan and recently restored works from the City Archaeological Museum, including a model of a sculpture of a female head with a vulture’s headdress, a stele from Edda Bresciani’s collection, and many other interesting works.

Discover more about ancient Egypt and the exhibition in the first season of our IGTV series Buongiorno Cultura.
