The Maya of the pre-Hispanic period were the creators of a fascinating civilisation, and have left to posterity dozens of cities revealing remarkable architecture, sculpture of great technical advancement, numerous frescoes, constructions, pottery vases and a detailed list of their religious beliefs, rituals, community live, habits and history.

This exhibition enables the visitor to appreciate the legacy of the Maya to humanity. In thematic order – the relationship with the environment, the power of cities, funerary rites – the exhibition presents the various aspects of this culture and its creative abilities. The exhibition attempts to present both a general overview and to show the variety of styles and aesthetic successes of the different Maya groups, each of them with its own language and means of expression.
