On November 29, 2017, Head of Agenzia Italiana per la Cooperazione allo Sviluppo – Ufficio Cairo, Dr. Felice Longobardi, together with Dr. Fabio Minniti and Dr. Yassin Mubarak from the Technical Support Unit of the Italian-Egyptian Debt Swap Programme (IEDS), visited the متحف ملوي – Mallawi Museum in Minya Governorate.

The Museum, looted during the protests erupted in summer 2013, has been rehabilitated within a project funded under the second phase of the IEDS, through the supply of new exhibition equipment, including showcases, lighting, graphic and didactic panels. The Museum has reopened to the public on September 2016, once rehabilitation activities were concluded.
