RUPESTRE, The first sanctuaries.

RUPESTRE, The first sanctuaries.


The architectural project for the exhibition »Rupestre. The first sanctuaries« has as protagonists the paintings that were painted on the rock more than 10,000 years ago. It is a museography project that extends over three exhibition halls of the museum and that together invite visitors on a journey through time. The aim of this exhibition is to highlight these cave paintings and explain their origin, interpretation and context, with the peculiarity of not having tangible objects.

Statement of the jury

The cave-like polygonal ceiling structure is atmospherically illuminated, giving the exhibition a special ambience. Such a fascinating and magical exhibition that transports the visitor back into the past and gives them emotional and intellectual access to the earliest art works in human history.
