The museographic Project at El Real Alcázar 2006

The museographic project starts with Ibn Khaldun's stays in Seville and Granada between 1363 and 1365. At that time he must have walked through the so-named Patio de Crucero (Cross Patio - built by Alfonso X and now very different to what it was then), the Sala de la Justicia (Justice Room - built by Alfonso XI) and especially the Palace of king Don Pedro, built between 1364 and 1366. This palace is the central piece of the exhibition, and its excellent state of conservation make it the ideal place to show the architecture, décor and luxury of the Mudejar court that Ibn Khaldun would have witnessed.

The exhibition is divided into the following sections: "The 14th century times and spaces"; "The situation of states"; "Wars and expansion"; "Merchants and merchandise"; "Demography and apocalypse"; "Artistic geography"; "Historical profile and cultural contributions of Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406)"; "The road towards the Renaissance" and "Seville in the 14th century".

Parallel to this, a catalogue of studies will be published, along with a catalogue of exhibits as well as works such as "Seville in the 14th century", in collaboration with the J.M. Lara Foundation, the book, "Ruy González de Clavijo's ambassadorship to Tamerlane", the book, "Ibn Khaldun, the very wise man" by Salem Himmich in collaboration with the J.M. Lara Foundation, the minutes of the congress "Arab manuscripts in Spain and morocco. A tribute to Ibn Khaldun", the publication of the CD "The Alcázar Palace of Pedro I in Seville. The palaces seen by Ibn Khaldun" and the CD "Arab manuscripts in the 14th century".
