Conference at Museo Egizio : "Human Remains. Ethics,Conservation, Display"

From 30 September to 1 October 2019
Via Accademia delle Scienze 6, 10123 Torino mappa

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.


To participate, please follow the instructions onthe submission form.
