The "Harwa 2001" ONLUS Cultural Association presents
The Tomb of Harwa

Spring - Summer 2004


Compagnia di San Paolo, Gruppo Galgano Consulenti di Direzione and the Italian Foreign Affairs Ministry, funded the 2004 campaign. The insurance covering the members of the mission was provided by Toro Assicurazioni S.p.A. for the sixth year. The members of the Cultural Association “Harwa 2001” O.N.L.U.S., through their membership subscriptions and donations, substantially contributed to the success of the excavation’s activities. Our warmest thanks go to all of them. We also would like to thank the authorities of the Supreme Council of Antiquities who greatly facilitated our activities: Dr. Zahy Hawass, General Director, Sabri Abd el-Aziz, Director of Pharaonic Antiquities, Holeil Ghali, Director of the Upper Egyptian Antiquities and Aly el-Asfar, Director of the Western Thebes Area. Special thanks are due to Ammar Hassan Anafy, Hassan Aly Ahmed, el-Tayeb Mohammed el-Khadry, our inspectors, who followed the work of the mission, demonstrating a sincere friendship to us. The help and the support given to us by the Italian Government, represented in Egypt by H.E. the Ambassador Antonio Badini and the Archaeological expert Dr. Maria Casini, proved, as usual, invaluable.
