At the Centrale Montemartini in Rome, the exhibition"Egyptian Etruscans. From Eugene Berman to the Golden Scarab."

The new exhibition space for temporary exhibitions will be a place for dialogue between the two great Mediterranean civilizations through precious Egyptian objects found in recent excavation campaigns at Vulci and Ancient Egyptian artifacts belonging to the Berman Collection, as well as works on loan from the Egyptian Section of the National Archaeological Museum in Florence. These works are evidence of trade between the two peoples.

An introductory section will tell of the 19th-century collecting of Augusto Castellani and Giovanni Barracco, two of the leading ancient art experts of the time.

Also on view will be a selection of valuable Egyptian works from the collection of Eugene Berman, a Russian painter, illustrator, stage designer and art collector.

The exhibition closes with a reference to the activity of the Carabinieri’s Cultural Heritage Protection Command and the discovery of the grave goods from the Tomb of the Golden Scarab, found at Vulci in 2016, as part of the effort to combat clandestine excavations.

The exhibition, which will end on June 30, 2018, is curated by Alfonsina Russo, Claudio Parisi Presicce, Simona Carosi and Antonella Magagnini.
