Queen Nefertari rises again at the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg

Published on 19 July 17

 

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.

 

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 organized by the Egyptian Museum of Turin, the same institution that made this exhibition possible, which is now on at the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg.

 

 

The exhibition features more than 250 pieces including sculptures, stelae, funerary papyri and objects related to everyday life. A priceless treasure to hand down to new generations, thanks to Lavazza’s constant commitment alongside major national and international art museums.

 

A passion to be promoted and shared, because having access to culture means protecting our past, enhancing the present and inspiring the future.
