Antonio Espinosa, Director of Vilamuseu

“Once you start making things accessible, it’s a spiral: you’re bitten by the bug then it simply snowballs”

A professor of archaeology as well as a museologist, the director of the innovative and exclusive Vilamuseu defends the project as a catalyst for local development in Vilajoiosa, which forms one of the facility’s four pillars, along with accessibility, quality and heritage interpretation. “It’s a driving force that is structuring and articulating the whole municipality: the town has been permeated by the Vilamuseu effect”. Citing Henri Rivière, one of the fathers of museology, he affirms that “you have to think about people, not about things; but you have to think about all people”.
