The Egyptian Heritage has long been in danger, despite the efforts of the Supreme Council of Antiquities to improve the conditions of the huge corpus of monuments spread over the country’s vast desert areas. Coupled with the period of instability following the Arab Spring, monuments, archaeological sites, museums and antiquities storages have become targets and present a major problem to be solved: What does the future hold for Egyptian Antiquities, and how do we protect and celebrate the country’s cultural heritage? Sandro Vannini considers these and other similar issues. There will be a Q&A session at the end.
