The architectural project for the exhibition "Rupestre. The first sanctuaries" is focused on the paintings placed in caves or "shelters" 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 all of them together try to take visitors to another time of the history.

Hall 1 try to represent a real cavern through the use of a specific light set, facetted planes and broken spaces. It tries to generate a time lag of more than 10,000 years in the visitors' feelings. Room 2 introduces the visitor to the landscape ceremony through the abstraction of a steep shelter and original casts, which host and define a place of worship.

Room 3 contains a large table of more than 15 meters long that generates a winding route. Along the room there are pieces of schematic and Levantine art placed and suspended above the table from the different shelters and caves.

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. The purpose is to transport the visitor to the place where the works were made, through an architecture that activates the springs of memory and exalts the feelings, making use of a scenography that offers both a spatial and landscape experience.
