(by Rodolfo Calò) (ANSA) - CAIRO, 25 NOV - After the transfer of pharaoh mummies to Cairo last April, Egypt staged another spectacular enhancement of its archaeological heritage tonight, this time in Luxor: in a riot of lights, percussion and monumental beauties enhanced by skilful TV shots, the famous "Avenue of the Sphinxes" was reopened in the presence of the Egyptian head of state, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.


    Almost 3,000 years old and more than 2,700 meters long, the newly restored road connects the iconic Egyptian temples of Karnak and Luxor and is well-known for its approximately 1,200 traditional and cryophalic sphinxes, that is, with the body of a lion and the head of a ram, lined up on the sides.


    On the seven-meter-wide street, figures dressed in priests paraded carrying golden suportantine boats, accompanied by dancing vestals and bearers of asteluminosae.

The soundtrack was classical music vocalized among other things by about 160 percussionists and bandemilitari, as anticipated by the Egyptian media.


    The television event, which began at 6:30 pm Italian time, was enriched by images of the temples taken by drones, warm shiny spotlights and torches, attractive presenters in evening dress, tourist documentaries, ballets on boats on the Nile.


   The protagonist of the introduction was Sisi, who visited the temple of Luxor under the guidance of the Minister of Antiquities, Khaled al-Anani.
