Egitto Tesori Sommersi

Reggia di Venaria Reale, Turin
February - May 2009

The exhibition “Egypt’s Sunken Treasures” presented objects exclusively from the underwater excavations of the Institut Européen d’Archéologie Sous-Marine (IEASM), conducted since 1992 in Alexandria and Aboukir Bay by Franck Goddio in co-operation with the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Egypt. Around 500 artefacts were on view, most of them never before shown in public. 

The exhibition was designed by Robert Wilson.
