Description

The Egyptian Ministry of Culture identified the enhancement of the national museum system as an essential priority, with the goal of preserving the priceless treasures of Egypt. The Museum of Midan Tahrir, focus of the project, gathers the most important collection of Egyptian art in the world and is at the heart of the Egyptian museum system. Precisely for this reason, the constant intervention of the Italian Cooperation, aiming at strengthening its capacity at different levels, had the advantage of triggering a virtuous circle that allows to reach an ambitious, as fundamental, objective: the redevelopment of the whole Egyptian museum system. The project allowed the implementation of a training program for the conservation and restoration of the Cairo Egyptian Museum's collection. The small wooden head of Tutankhamun child, the famous portraits of Fayoum and the head of Queen Hashepsut, are just a few, among the most important works, which have been the subject of study and restoration interventions within those courses. The Master Plan, implemented under the program, intends to ameliorate the museum's organization and management, including its exhibitions and presentation to the public. The Plan is taking into consideration both the museological and the musegraphical aspects (relationship between the museum and the surrounding urban space, architectural restoration and exhibition design) and the architectural aspects too (new spaces needed for additional services: bookshop, refreshment areas, classrooms, offices, laboratories, etc.). read more close
