Etruscan Egyptians

From Eugene Berman to the Golden Scarab on display in Rome at Centrale Montemartini from December 21st 2017 to June 30th 2018.

The exhibition offers the opportunity to compare the two ancient cultures drawing inspiration from precious Egyptian objects, dating from the 8th to the 3rd century BC, and found in the recent excavation campaigns conducted in Vulci, an important city in southern Etruria.

To the unpublished discoveries of Vulci, are added the precious Egyptian finds of the Berman Collection and the works on loan from the Egyptian Section of the National Archaeological Museum of Florence. They all talk about trade, but above all about the cultural dialogue between civilizations that shared ideals of royalty, symbols of power and religious practices.
