Half a century has passed since the rescue of the Abu Simbel temples in Egypt. On February 4, Salini Impregilo (one of the construction companies that took part) and the Museo Egizio (Egyptian Museum) in Turin commemorated the feat with an event celebrating one of the most significant examples of international cooperation to safeguard a world heritage site. UNESCO in 1960 called on the world’s largest construction groups to take on the challenge of dismantling and reassembling the two temples of Ramesses II. The priceless 3,000-year-old temples were moved 280 metres inland and 65 metres higher than their original site, protected from the risk of flooding by the Nile River.
