The public, in a few days, will have an opportunity
to realize a century of exploration in the archaeological zone of Teotihuacan,
State of Mexico. This will be accomplished by means of the exhibition
of 425 discovered pieces from this pre-hispanic city, which in its time
(150A.C.–650 D.C.), was the sixth largest metropolis in the world.
The sample of Teotihuacan, City of the Gods, will cover an area
of nearly 3,500 square meters and will remain on display until
August of 2009. This is a small part of an extensive itinerary
taking it all in all to different regions of Europe:
The Museum Quai Branly, Paris, France; the Rietberg Museum, Zurich,
Switzerland; and The Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin, Germany.
Additionally, it will travel through Spain, Italy, Denmark and Sweden,
approaching 2011 and 2012. The pieces that compose this great
exposition are mostly from The National Museum
of Anthropology (303) and the archaeological zone Museum where
Teotihuacan once stood.
The exposition complements effective multimedia around the
development of this “megaurbe”. It was an extensive
investigation that took place from the middle of the 17th century, with
Mr. Carlos of Sigüenza and Gongora, until the 21st century,
in charge of specialists termed INAH.
