The magic of a fascinating civilization, explained to young readers through ten games that help to grasp the mystery of the signs and symbols of ancient Egypt.
In keeping with its policy of promotion of the heritage of art in Italy, Electa, in collaboration with the related governmental agencies, presents a new series of publications, the Treasure Hunts. This is a very stimulating and ambitious project, to accompany young readers through the universe of museums. The books in the series, sold in museum bookshops, are aimed at youngsters between the ages of eight and twelve. If it is true that every painting “hides” a story, then a visit to a museum can be transformed into a true treasure hunt, involving precise educational strategies. The guide to the Egyptian Museum of Turin is for children on the trail of the artifacts and symbols of the Egyptian civilization. Statues, sarcophagi, utensils, papyruses: the games proposed, also thanks to the stimulus of the final score and the iconographic impact of the reproductions, allow kids to get a closer look at about ten of the over 30,000 items conserved at the museum.
