The Regio Museo delle Antichità Egizie was formally founded in 1824 with the acquisition by King Carlo Felice of a large collection. This was assembled by Bernardino Drovetti, of Piedmontese origin. Champollion arrived in Turin as the Drovetti Collection was being unpacked, and within a few months of intense activity and produced a catalogue raisonné of the collections. It was Champollion who famously wrote, “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin.”
