Ancient Egypt comes back to life with a historical event thanks to the "Pharoahs Golden Parade", the majestic parade organized by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities for Saturday 3 April in Cairo.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo and the Museum of Peace - MAMT in collaboration with the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square and with the new National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) in Fustat, participated among the international guests in live streaming at the historical event "Pharoahs Golden Parade", which the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has organized for Saturday 3 April in Cairo.
The protagonists are 22 royal mummies dating back to the XVII, XVIII, XIX and XX dynasty of the pharaohs. Of the 22 mummies, 18 belong to pharaohs, including Ramses II, Siptah, Seknen Ra, Tuthmosis III, Seti I, and four to queens, including Hatshebut, Meritamun, wife of King Amenhotep I, and Ahmose-Nefertari, wife of the king Ahmose. The event brought spectators back to the age of the pyramids, when kings and queens were transported to their tombs into eternity in sumptuous funeral processions.
The parade, accompanied by fireworks, started from Tahir Square and ended at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, where the mummies will remain permanently. The mummies went down the Nile and carried by chariots and horses
