Night at the Museum - 1 - Egypt

Here a film showing some statues you can see visiting the Egyptian Museum, Torino

video

In occasion of the Winter Olympic Games, Torino 2006, the exibition space of the  Museum hosting the statues gained a new stage design created by Dante Ferretti (two times awared by the Academy for Best Art Direction).  Visitors entering the room were  plunged in a dark space where only the statues were lighted. Dark walls and mirrors on them, background music of flutes with the rattling of a sistrum, created a suggestive feeling of being in Egypt.
