The Museum of the Roman Theater in collaboration with the Summer Courses of the UPCT 2021 has organized a course on Cultural Heritage of Cartagena: City and Territory, which will be held from July 19 to 21 in the Assembly Hall of the Museum of the Roman Theater.

In this course, the Cultural Heritage of Cartagena will be approached from the perspective of the relationship between the City and the Territory. This approach has become in recent years the preferred field of action in many regions since they consider cultural and natural assets as instruments for the differentiation and characterization of the place, that is why we will begin the sessions by addressing the paleontological wealth of region, following for its cultural values, where the Bay of Cartagena, becomes an essential point since its port and its geographical position have been the reason for the City throughout history.

In the course we will delve into the latest advances on the ancient topography of Cartagena, as well as the relations of the city with the territory, incorporating the productive and recreational spaces in the case of the Roman Villa of Portmán. We will also focus on the evolution of the port front in modern and contemporary times, and on the history of its industry and the people of the coast. Among them, several examples will be analyzed of how the inventory of heritage resources has constituted the starting point of heritage projects such as the case of Águilas, and the Murcia Rio project, both examples encompass large areas of the territory, including landscape and cultural values diverse, historical and social.
Finally, other novelties will also be shown, such as the renovation project of the port area, Plaza Mayor de Cartagena, or the collections of the New Isaac Peral Museum.
