My Museo Egizio. Migrant women tell about the Museum

Since November 2016, eleven women from Northern Africa took part to a training course consisting in 10 lessons at the Museum, both in classroom and in the galleries. They were taught about some aspects of the daily life in ancient Egypt. As a final work, they produced a nice booklet about the topics discussed, in Italian and Arabic. Thanks to this basic knowledge, they are able now to guide short thematic tours in the galleries. Some of them are currently active part of the Association ACME (Friend of the Museo Egizio) and they lead special tours in Arabic, Italian, French and English during special events. The same are also involved in the “Welcome Tours” offered to migrants and newcomers, in the framework of the European project “New Roots”.
