Head of Oman’s National Museum awarded Italy’s highest civilian honor

Jamal Hassan Al-Musawi, secretary-general of Oman’s National Museum, has received the Star of Italy, the country’s highest civilian award, Arab News reports.


Al-Musawi received the honor from the European country’s Ambassador to Oman Federica Favi at a ceremony in Muscat. The award recognizes Al-Musawi’s work in enhancing relations between the two countries, having collaborated with Italian experts on projects since 2011.


“We benefited from recruiting Italian experts in the foundational phase of the National Museum, to contribute to restoring elements of the cultural heritage of Oman,” Museum head told the Omani News Agency.
