Egypt: Millenary Splendour: The Leiden Collection in Bologna
A handsome book featuring over 500 archaeological objects from the Egyptian collections of two important museums in Europe
In 2011 the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in Leiden and the Museo Civico Archeologico in Bologna signed a five-year agreement with the aim of embarking on joint research and cultural projects.
Egypt: Millenary Splendour: The Leiden Collection in Bologna celebrates the museums’ intense and fruitful collaboration through the display of over 500 finds – some on loan from the Dutch museum for the first time – spanning the entire arc of Egyptian civilization, from the Predynastic to the Roman period. Since the study of history can never be completely objective, it is always appropriate to find the right way to recount the past.
