The Egyptian Museum of Florence has one of the most important ushabti collections in Italy and Europe. The collection contains around eight hundred ushabtis, which originally belonged to different collections: Granducale, Nizzoli, Rosellini, Ricci, Schiaparelli. Other smaller groups contain objects belonging to different sources collected within the 19th and 20th centuries. The ushabti corpus of Florence belongs to the end of the Second Intermediate and Roman Period. In 2008, the “Ushabti Project” was started by the Egyptology and the Coptic Civilization Study Centre “J.F. Champollion” of Genoa, in cooperation with the Egyptian Museum of Florence, which were interested in a complete study and scientific publication of a new catalogue concerning the ushabti collection. The catalogue is divided into several volumes, providing a complete documentation of the Florence ushabti collection. This volume contains a general introduction about the history of the collection, the abbreviations and textual codes, the records, a photographic section, a useful index and a bibliography.
