Due to its geographical location, the province of Zaragoza is a natural crossroads between continental Europe and the Iberian Peninsula. The diversity of its landscape, its gastronomic tradition and its cultural heritage are some of the subjects that are present in their pavilion. This exhibition centre is the only one dedicated to a province and is therefore a meeting point where the 296 municipalities of the province of Zaragoza invite visitors to discover all the corners of their territory. The aim is to show an area with its own identity and to reaffirm the singular character of the people who make up this province, through a reality that successfully walks the line between tradition and the avant-garde. The exhibition of the contents is presented on two very different supports. The wall is a dynamic surface divided into two parts, one smooth and another that the visitor can manipulate. In both spaces, and thanks to large photographs, we discover the characteristics of the province and the contrasts caused by the presence or absence of water, and all this from a spectacular and unknown perspective that greatly surprises all visitors.
