The temporary exhibition curated by Paolo Marini in collaboration with Martina Terzoli, Alessandro Girardi, and Cédric Gobeil will accompany visitors into the world of beauty in ancient Egypt.
The story of precious objects of ancient Egypt fascinates the visitors of the Vicenza Jewellery Museum, which extends until Sunday May 28th the exhibition "Jewels and amulets. Beauty in ancient Egypt", curated by Paolo Marini, in collaboration with Martina Terzoli, Alessandro Girardi and Cédric Gobeil, and initially scheduled until May 7th. The exhibition, born from the collaboration between The Jewellery Museum and the Museo Egizio as collateral to the exhibition in the Basilica Palladiana "The creators of eternal Egypt. Scribes, craftsmen and workers at the service of the pharaoh", accompanies visitors into the world of beauty, of cosmetics and magic of ancient Egypt, discovering amulets, hieroglyphs, and jewels, including an extraordinary funeral outfit still hidden among the bandages of the mummies of Kha and Merit, who lived in Deir el-Medina about 3600 years ago.
Together with the exhibition, the workshops for families continue at The Jewellery Museum until the end of May. The next appointment, "Nefer = Beautiful", scheduled for Sunday, March 26th, will be dedicated to the graphic signs of hieroglyphic writing and its sacred and magical meaning.
