Open Courtyard: the Flora of Ancient Egypt
Inspired by famous depictions of gardens found in the tombs of the Egyptian upper classes and supported by archaeobotanical research, Museo Egizio presents "Open Courtyard: the Flora of Ancient Egypt," a green space in the courtyard of the Collegio dei Nobili open to everyone. It opens today, June 29, come and discover it!
Furthermore, from the 30th of June until the 30th of July, from Thursday to Saturday, from 10 p.m. until midnight, one of the facades of the inner courtyard of the Museum will turn into a dynamic screen. With a video-mapping technique, flowers and plants of ancient Egypt will bloom, three trees will recount a love lyric, and lastly, the fauna of ancient Egypt will populate the garden, all this to the rhythm of an engaging melody.
Admission for the video mapping is free, subject to availability.
Four video mapping performances per hour are scheduled, each lasting about 8 minutes.
