THE EGYPTIAN COLLECTION

The MANN (National Archaeological Museum in Naples) is going to experiment what everyone interested in cultural heritage and archaeology in Italy was waiting for: the reopening of its Egyptian collection after five years of closing due to structural adjustment works.
The collection has its “natural home” in five rooms that will be now thematic for an easy and enjoyable fruition, and take their name by the story the artefacts tell and recall to the memory: Men and Pharaohs, the Tomb and funerary equipment, Mummification, the Magic and religious world, Egypt in Campania.
The selection kept by the great Southern museum is wide and variegated and counts more than 1200 objects, a series of artefacts born with the Borgia-Picchianti collection in the first decades of the XIX century.
