Art is for everyone. It’s a narrative that, combined with history, gives life to myths and legends.
The story portrayed in the exhibition "Nefertari and the Valley of the Queens" comes to life along the banks of the Nile at Thebes, where the greatest exponents of the New Kingdom (1550–1069 BC) were buried.
In among this legacy, the tomb of Queen Nefertari stands out. She was the wife of Rameses II and considered to be the incarnation of the goddess Hathor. The sarcophagus was discovered in 1904 during an expedition organised by the Egyptian Museum of Turin, the same institution that made this exhibition possible, which is now on at the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg.
