Founded in 1929 with the aim of promoting Egyptian, Arab and African culture in Italy, the Egyptian Academy holds Arab music concerts, lectures, art exhibitions, conferences and fun educational classes for children. Classes for children include lessons in ancient hieroglyphics, Arabic letters and numbers and traditional Egyptian fables.
The academy also hosts visiting artists and has a monthly program in the library highlighting famous Egyptian artistic and intellectual personalities. Exclusively at the Egyptian Academy, you can now also visit a reproduction of the famous Tutankhamun IX’s tomb. The exhibit includes 28 recreated pieces like a parade cart, golden throne, the shell of the three sarcophagi and more, providing visitors a rare opportunity to travel back in time and experience Ancient Egyptian masterpieces.
