Continuing our examination of Egyptian antiquities in Europe, we travel south to Turin and the Museo Egizio, the world’s oldest museum devoted entirely to ancient Egyptian culture. We start with the story of the small collection assembled by the Duke of Savoy in 1630 and chart the development to the museum today, which holds the largest collection of Egyptian antiquities outside Cairo.
