The book is the catalog of the exhibition in Rome (Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo, from July 11 to November 9 2008). The review aims to document, with about eighty artworks, the chronological arc that runs from the second century BC until the Age of Enlightenment, during which Egyptian history becomes myth. From the most prestigious collections (Capitoline Museums, Vatican Museum, National Archaeological Museum of Naples, Louvre, the Pergamon Museum ...), works selected by a committee of great esteem illustrate in a clear and complete way the intense relationship between secular Egypt and Rome, and it serves as a guide to discover the mysteries of Egyptian Roma (obelisks, temples, etc. Serapeum.).
