Executive Director of the Archaeological Models Production Unit Amr al-Taibi said: “This exhibition aims to provide an opportunity for the largest number of the Italian public, especially children, to visit the exhibition.”

“The exhibition will give the Italian people the chance to get acquainted with some of the most important treasures of ancient Egyptian antiquities and their monuments and tourist attractions,” he added.

Al-Taibi stressed: “This exhibition shows the extent of the interest of Italian citizens in learning about the features of ancient Egyptian antiquities and civilization, which contributes to the promotion and marketing of visiting Egypt and stimulating the movement of cultural tourism.”

The exhibition includes 70 archeological models of Egyptian antiquities that were produced to participate in the exhibition. Among them are the statue of the Seated Scribe and the masks of both Yuya and Tuya, the bust of Queen Nefertiti, and the head of King Akhenaten.
