About fifty people attend the first complementary event to the exhibition En route through the castles of Catalonia, which was held this week thanks to the participation of the Casal History Group.
Last Tuesday, June 21, the three-dimensional reproduction of Burriac Castle was presented in the UEC-Mataró exhibition hall. The presentation was given by Josep M. Rovira, member of the Casal History Group. The event, which was presented by Joaquim Fernàndez, from the Associació Mataró Cultural, organizing entity, was attended by around fifty people.
Joan Francesc Clariana, on behalf of the Casal History Group, was in charge of presenting the lecturer and the web project Cabrera de Mar Archeology and Heritage, as well as the collection of books Patrimoni de la Vall de Cabrera de Mar in 3D that the entity promotes. Rovira took a virtual tour of the castle through web images and 3D recreations as well as videos of the three-dimensional reconstruction of Burriac Castle.
The conference was part of the complementary activities to the exhibition En route through the castles of Catalonia, which will be inaugurated on June 8, in the exhibition hall of the UEC-Mataró, in Carrer Nou, number 29 and which has been promoted by the Mataró Cultural Association in collaboration with Foto Cine Mataró and the Sant Lluc Association for the Art of Mataró.
Albert Geronès (Barcelona, 1951 - Mataró, 2021), teacher and member of Mataró Cultural, devised the project to make known a small part of the vast architectural and historical heritage of Catalonia.
Catalonia is a land of castles. Proof of this are the 799 fortresses, monasteries, towers and fortified houses scattered throughout the various parts of the Catalan geography. With their stories and legends, they are witnesses of the past that have contributed to making us understand history as we know it today. What is presented in the exhibition is just a sample of the castles that make up the medieval historical legacy of Catalonia.
The exhibition, as well as the complementary events held there, can be done thanks to the collaboration of the following sponsors: BOTER Fine Arts; BIG Real Estate; Castellví Winery; Delegation of the Barcelona Surveyors Association; Joan Antoni Rodon, technical architect; Criterion Software; The Distillery, Cultural Space; Martínez Saurí, Lawyers; MOLDUMAT; Fermalli Advertising and the Regina Puig Studio.
