Il Nilo a Pompei
Visions of Egypt in the Roman World
From Pharaonic Egypt to Roman Italy: a journey against the backdrop of the Mediterranean. It featured objects and images that were taken from the banks of the Nile to new lands and different cultures, and in this way have come down to us.
Starting from Alexandria, passing through Greek Delos, and arriving at Pozzuoli in Campania, we follow the development of Egyptian cults and iconographic motifs. The exhibition layout focused in particular on the sites of Pozzuoli, Cumae and Benevento in Campania, with in-depth analysis of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
