The Museum of Semana Santa Marinera de València “Salvador Caurín” hosts the first edition of an exhibition that shows the material heritage of the ceramic panels that mark the route of the Via Crucis procession, held on Good Friday morning. “La Processó del Via Crucis en la Setmana Santa Marinera de València” highlights the heritage value of our great festival, giving prominence to the tiles that we can see scattered around the Marítimo de València and that mark the stations that Jesus Christ suffered on his way to Calvary.
The inauguration of this first exhibition, in which you can see the panels of the parishes of Our Lady of the Angels and Christ the Redeemer-San Rafael, was last June 29. The event was attended by the Deputy Mayor of Valencia, Sandra Gomez, the territorial director of the presidency of the Generalitat, Francisco Molina, General Miguel Angel Guil and the president of the Association of Fallas del Maritimo, Julian Carabantes. The deputy mayor of Valencia herself, Sandra Gómez, highlighted on seeing the exhibition “the relationship that weaves the party with the urban space, which, by preserving a number of characteristics and genuine facilitates the development of the same. Good sample of it is the incorporation of the ceramic panels of the Via Crucis in the facades of some houses”. Not in vain, the Semana Santa Marinera is the most deeply rooted and traditional festival in the marine neighborhoods of Grao, Cabanyal and Canyamelar and therefore it is very interesting the relationship that is created between this cultural event with the environment and the neighbors, especially in the days of Passion.
The inauguration of the exhibition was presented by Pep Martorell, former president of the Junta Mayor de Semana Santa Marinera de València and a great enthusiast of artistic exhibitions like this one. Also in attendance were members of the current Governing Council, headed by Carles Genís.
