Description

The Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo is considered one of the most important in the world with its exceptional collection of rare woodwork, plaster, metal, ceramic, glass, crystal, and textile objects. It was heavily damaged on 24 January 2014 by a terrorist car bombing attack targeting the main security headquarters located in front of the Museum building. The government launched a call for cooperation to which the Italian government generously responded with a contribution of 800.000 Euros. Hence, the Italian Cooperation in Cairo, the Ministry of Antiquities of Egypt and UNESCO have agreed to join forces through the present project that aims to enhance the valorisation of Islamic Art in Egypt by contributing to the full rehabilitation of the Museum particularly upgrading its capacities in restoration, conservation, registration, data collection and risk-preparednes read more close
