Egypt returns to Pompeii in a striking contemporary reinterpretation. From April 20 to November 2, 2016, in the Great Palaestra of Excavations of Pompeii, the exhibition “Egypt Pompeii” opened to the pubblic, promoted by Pompeii Superintendence with organization by Electa. This is the second location of the project of the same name, stemming from a collaboration between the Pompeii Superintendence, the Egyptian Museum and the National Archaeological Museum in Naples. Three different venues will trace the encounter between cultures that were distant, but historically related and intimately connected, through the dialogue between Egyptian artifacts of the Pharaonic era and artworks of the Hellenistic-Republican and Imperial period that embraced and reinterpreted its imagery.
