He went on to add that the aircraft is ready to take off once the American institution confirms the delivery date, expected to be in late March.

The minister highlighted that Casa Concha, which belongs to an institution of Cusco and will house the relics in the Imperial City, is in good conditions. “I’m really impressed with the works done.” 

Ossio added that the museographer who kept the pieces in Yale will collaborate with the museum adaptation of Casa Concha.

The 363 artifacts will first be displayed for six days at the Government Palace, in Lima.
