03/01/2011

On November 15th, 2010, the research center of La Bastida hosted a delegation of executives from two regions of Germany, Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt. These were the General Director of Heritage and Culture of Lower Saxony, Dr. Schwander; the president of the Chamber of Commerce in Lower Saxony, Dr. Schmid; the Mayor of the city of Schöningen, Mr. Wunderling-Weilbier; and the General Director of Culture of Saxony-Anhalt and Director of the Museum of Prehistory in Halle, Professor Dr. Meller. The Mayor of Totana, Mr. Martínez Andreo, and the Councillor of Tourism of the city, Ms. Sanchez Ruiz, also attended to the ceremony.


The German delegation was on an official trip that included visits of the museums of Granada, Almería and Cartagena, besides La Bastida. Their aim is to explore new ideas, techniques of musealisation, exhibition concepts and dissemination resources, and to use them as a reference for projects in Lower Saxony. In particular, the project of La Bastida was defined as a pilot initiative on managing the archaeological heritage. Moreover, this one will help providing new cultural, educational and touristic  alternatives for the region.


The valuation and dissemination of heritage, the scientific level of archaeology research, as well as the offer of quality tourism to diversify seasonal tourism were highlighted by the delegation. According to them, these are the main potential of the project and strategy of economic development. It was considered especially interesting the idea of using and managing cultural heritage to address changes in the economy, through creating new training and job opportunities. The political representatives expressed the importance of public investment in research and development of heritage (15 million € for Schöningen Museum). While the representative of the Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Schmid, stressed on the commitment of local business to  preserve the existing cultural facilities since the economy of a region gets direct or indirectly profit from them.
One outcome of the visit was to settle international partnerships in the cultural field, especially between the Event Center Project of Schöningen and La Bastida Project.
