In 2019, our researchers from the Institute for Mummy Studies together with the Egyptologist from the Museo Civico Archeologico di Bologna launched a project on two rare Egyptian mummies that had long been kept in the museum's vaults. The two mummies vary in terms of age, sex and chronology, and display characteristics that make them unique. After an in-depth interdisciplinary study and careful conservation work, the two mummies will be returned to both the scientific community and the public in an exhibition as part of the 10th World Congress on Mummy Studies. The exhibition 'Mummies. Unwrapping the Past’ will open on 2 September at the NOI Techpark in Bolzano and will remain open until 8 October 2022. Admission is free. All details about the exhibition and events will be online on the exhibition website from 2 September 2022.
