(AGI) Turin, May 24 - "The Nile in Pompeii" exhibition in Turin has received over 78,000 visitors in two months, that is more than 1000 per day. The exhibition grew out of cooperation between the Egyptian Museum of Turin, the Superintendence of Pompeii and the Naples National Archaeological Museum (MANN). Visitor numbers peaked on April 25, with more than 3393 entries. The museum's new exhibition hall houses 330 pieces, of which 172 are from the Superintendency of Pompeii and the Naples National Archaeological Museum while many others come from Italian and foreign museums. These will be joined on Tuesday by two other works, arriving from Madrid: a statue of Anubis and a fresco in the Third Pompeian style depicting a pair of sphinxes. "We are very pleased with the public response to our first temporary exhibition. The Museum + Exhibition entry ticket has been well received and the public appreciates the dynamism of the museum, which is offering different cultural proposals alongside its extraordinary permanent collection," said museum director Christian Greco. "The temporary exhibitions, creating connections between the precious artefacts of the museum and the works from Italian and international museums, seeks to provide a new interpretation of the history of Ancient Egypt," he added.
