**** USEFUL INFORMATION ****
Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Time 6 pm
Sala Conferenze – Museo Egizio
Introduction by: Paolo Del Vesco, curator of Museo Egizio and of the exhibition "Missione Egitto 1903 -1920"
La conferenza, a cura di Amara Thornton, ricercatrice onoraria associata all’Istituto di Archeologia dell’UCL, vuole far avvicinare il pubblico alla varietà di notizie portate alla luce dalla ricerca archivistica e dalle pubblicazioni più famose che raccontano le esperienze archeologiche del passato.
L'archeologia ebbe un ruolo fondamentale nel contesto del turismo imperiale e, nel tempo, artisti e archeologi, si sono dedicati allo sviluppo della disciplina e delle sue pratiche, rendendola anche più conosciuta al grande pubblico.
Tutto questo è stato possibile grazie agli uomini e alle donne celebri, ma spesso anche dimenticati, che hanno preso parte alle grandi avventure archeologiche, come ci ricorda anche la mostra "Missione Egitto 1903 - 1920".
