The exhibition From Egypt to Pisa. Gaetano Rosellini and his Collections has been extended until April 30th 2023.
The exhibition, inaugurated on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the foundation of the Egyptological Collections of the University of Pisa, was conceived one year after the death of Edda Bresciani, the world-famous Egyptologist who gave the Collections their name.
Realised in collaboration with the Opera della Primaziale Pisana (O₽A), which has lent the University three precious finds from its collection of Egyptian antiquities, the exhibition offers the opportunity to admire a selection of the small large masterpieces donated to the Opera della Primaziale Pisana by Gaetano Rosellini (1796-1863) in 1830, on his return from the famous 'Franco-Tuscan Expedition to Egypt' (1828-1829), led by his nephew Ippolito Rosellini (1800-1843) together with J. F. Champollion and in which Gaetano had participated as engineer and architect.
Until the end of November 2022, guided tours will continue on Thursdays and Fridays, in two shifts:
from 15:30 to 16:30
from 16:30 to 17:30
