If he, with his painter's hands, did something beautiful, she would go and try to express it as a dance.
It was expected that the Department of Museums would limit the influx of spectators to thirty percent of the capacity and would take extreme measures of social distancing in this fight to win the battle against the coronavirus."The last time I was in Cieza was a few years ago with an exhibition at the Hospedería San Sebastián," explained the painter Álvaro Peña when they introduced him to someone during the opening of 'Las flores del bien' at the Siyâsa Museum last month.

Their forms take movement,with curved and vibrant brushstrokes.
Peña allowed his work to speak for itself before the curious gaze of some twenty spectators, among whom were the mayor of Cieza, Pascual Lucas; the councilors for Museums, Commerce and Youth, Conchi Villa, María Jesús López and Marta Sánchez, respectively; the director of the Municipal Service of Museums, Joaquín Salmerón, and the curator of 'Las flores del bien, Pedro López.For the Siyâsa Museum, the promotion of its funds must be accompanied by the dissemination of what has been recovered and investigated.
Hence the efforts made by the management, since its inception, to make available to the general public the fruits of the work of archaeologists, researchers, etc.
Anyone who visits its rooms will probably experience a unique sensation: that of contemplating the history of Cieza, grateful for those moments, for the work of municipal archaeologists and technicians who recovered their heritage, and more aware than ever of how urgent it is to preserve those archaeological sites and the treasures they contain.
Only by knowing our history and the mistakes made in the past can we avoid them.
The municipal museum on Calle San Sebastián is still news: on May 12 it turned twenty-one.An example of what a cultural space should be for your delight, preservation and dissemination, it was created in 1999.
Thanks to its work, Cieza recovered part of its heritage and made Siyâsa a first-class museum center, a mandatory stopover for citizens and visitors.

Beyond the rooms, all that can be seen is a row of ropes, maromas, and olive milling caps that complement the objects and furnishings on display.
With its large photographs, the place has an elemental beauty that makes one think of a research work by Antonio Pérez Gómez titled 'The manual industry of esparto grass': "If we could make him speak to a grass rope, to a rope, and that we Tell your story, whoever listens to it, not having with this economy old relationships that would have brought you up to date with your interiors, would hear things that would amaze you ".

It is an old collection, full of objects, disused gadgets and other ties to the past. Visiting these unique facilities for their heritage so thoroughly preserved, which provides an exceptional testimony about the 20th century science, had an added incentive on the occasion of International Museum Day.
And there was a demonstration of 'hilao' with a wheel, of making a suit by the esparto maker Antonio José Salmerón and other esparto braiding techniques.
Some of the images evoked manual labor and the livelihood of 'hilaores' that they had so honestly earned.
It was not the only surprise of the afternoon.
