Enjoy Turin's baroque historical centre and its cultural offering including royal palaces, residences, museums and so on, and benefit from the facilities of a modern city. Cultural tourism, sports and higher education are just some of the city assets.
On 30th September and 1st October 2019 the Museo Egizio will organize the conference "Human Remains. Ethics, Conservation, Display".
This event is a follow-up of like-themed conference organised in Pompeii and Naples in May 2019, at which many questions were raised regarding the study, conservation and display of human remains.
Like the previous event, the Turin conference intends to address these issues, but with a particular focus on mummies, given the nature of the Egyptian Museum's collection. These study days are intended to give voice to the broad range of approaches to such a delicate issue.
The conference will be divided into three sections:
The living and the dead
Preserving the body, preserving the mummy
Museums and exhibitions: case studies
At the end of the conference, the most pressing issues and the main points for reflection that will have emerged during the past two days will be reviewed and discussed among all participants.
