A commemoration of a project which occurred back in 1964-1968 will take place this week in Rome. The project consisted of saving Egypt’s Abu Simbel Temples. Over 40 million man hours were required to save the temples and 19 different nations participated in the project.

(ANSAmed) - ROME - An exhibition celebrating a project between 1964-1968 which saved Egypt's Abu Simbel temples returns to Rome next week. Over 2000 workers and 150 specialists from all over the world toiled for more than 40 million man-hours over a period of five years to salvage the Nubia temples, which may otherwise have disappeared during the construction of the Aswan Dam. To commemorate the works, which were sponsored by UNESCO and involved 19 nations, 'Abu Simbel: the saving of the temples: man and technology' returns to Rome on January 10 where it will be shown in the Egyptian Academy and includes original photos taken by workers involved in the project.
