Cuban Preservation of Egyptian Art Highlighted
MNBA specialists Aymee Chicuri Lastra and Niurka Fanego Alfonso, who have devoted their work to collections of Egyptian and Italian art, gave a lecture at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo before scholars, diplomats and local public, who were captivated by the zeal with which Cuba, a country with economic limitations, studies and preserves that historical-cultural heritage of mankind.
At the event organized by the Cuban Embassy, the Cervantes Institute of Cairo and the Egyptian Museum, Egyptian Ambassador to Havana Abdel Fattah proposed to hold a conference in Havana with scholars and lovers of Egyptian art in Spanish America, an initiative welcomed by Cubans and Egyptians.
