Egyptian-Italian lab for restoring and conserving papyrus
"Egyptian and Italian conservationists and curators on Tuesday inaugurated a laboratory for restoring and preserving papyrus located at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. 'The project aims to preserve the papyri for the long-term, not just to restore them to be looked at now,' said Corrado Basile of the International Papyrus Institute in Syracuse, Italy. Basile's institute is partnering with Egypt in the project". See the article for more details about the partnership and the lab.
