The goal of the exhibition 'Abu Simbel: the preserving of the Temples, man and technology' is to tell the story of the several stages in the extraordinary salvaging of the Egyptian Abu Simbel Temples. More than 2000 men - architects, engineers and workers - succeeded in the operation thanks to their hard work, technology, skill and genius. The exhibition will be hosted by the Mawlawi Dervish monumental complex in Cairo, restored by Professor Giuseppe Fanfoni and his group of the Italian-Egyptian Centre for Restoration and Archeology, after the first exhibition at the headquarters of the Chamber of Commerce in Rome, in May 2009.
