On display are over 100 reproductions of the most important artifacts found in the tomb of Tutankhamun, made in Cairo in collaboration with the Ministry of Egyptian Antiquities, including the golden throne, the war chariot, sarcophagi, canopic jars and the famous golden mask, and over 60 original finds * from the Egyptian collection of the National Archaeological Museum of Florence. In the department dedicated to mummification, the visitor can observe and understand the various stages of embalming.
Thanks to scenographic reconstructions and the application of virtual reality, created by Unsquare Life, the visitor is catapulted into the reconstructed environment of Tutankhamun’s tomb and can dwell on the individual objects of the funerary kit.
The story of the exhibition is the discoverer of the burial, the archaeologist Howard Carter, played by Bruno Santini, whose hologram, present in various points of the exhibition, was created by Image Project.
An ad hoc path has been structured for children and teenagers with captions and targeted visual aids.
