The City Council commissioned a book in Spanish and English to disseminate the attractions of the center, which brings together objects excavated in the neighborhood of Molinete
The Cartagena City Council has contracted the preparation of a catalog of the Museum of the Roman Molinete Forum, with “a very visual format and in two languages, Spanish and English, in accordance with the museographic guidelines established in the museum itself.” This was announced yesterday by the deputy mayor and councilor for Archaeological Heritage, Ana Belén Castejón, who indicated that the guide will cost 14,803 euros and “will facilitate the dissemination and knowledge of the museum.”
The book, which will also be distributed in bookstores and libraries, will include the 271 pieces that make up the collection, grouped according to the different historical phases identified along the way. This has been agreed by the City Council and the Regional Museum Service.
Castejón recalled that the museum was opened to the public in May and that among its pieces there are vestiges from the 1st to 19th centuries excavated in the Molinete neighborhood. Examples are “a container (sítula) used in the Roman ritual ceremonies that were celebrated in the banquet rooms of the Atrium Building, as well as the wall paintings related to its remodeling, with the representation of Apollo and the Muses.”
