"Training in museology, obtained through different academic degrees, gave me a broader perception of the importance of cultural heritage and a vision of the determining role cultural values can play in the construction of a more integrated and educated society. These values must be considered in the full range of their meaning and seen from a perspective where MAN assumes a decisive role in the creation and experience of Cultural Heritage."
