Transdisciplinary trajectories: the Egyptian Museum between Archaeometry and Museology

Transdisciplinary trajectories: the Egyptian Museum between Archaeometry and Museology

Enrico Ferraris, Curator of the Egyptian Museum of Turin

3 pm Fermi Room

The seminar will be streamed on our YouTube channel

Abstract

Enrico Ferraris will discuss the application of archaeometry as a standard method for studying and narrating the Egyptian Museum collection. Starting from the introduction of archaeometry as a research axis in 2015, some significant examples will be presented, such as the TT8 project and the 2019 “Invisible Archaeology” exhibition. During the seminar, he will discuss how humanities and natural science have become an integral part of a holistic vision, which, at the Egyptian Museum, increasingly links research and dissemination as moments of a single cultural trajectory.
