Subject historians and experts meet in Riopar (Albacete, Spain) for workshops dedicated to the history of singular industrial buildings

Last Tuesday 8 June, the Almadén-Francisco Javier de Villegas Foundation participated in the first meeting for recuperating these factories, organised by the Association of Businesswomen and Professionals in Sierra del Segura (Amepss), sponsored by the rural development association of Sierra del Segura through the Leader funds and social work of Caja de Castilla-La Mancha.

The purpose of these workshops was to add value to the 46 buildings linked to the Royal Brass Factories, along with the main of them, San Carlos building, in addition to canals, reservoirs and mines. At this time, the space is undergoing procedures to be recognised as an Asset of Cultural Interest (ACI).

A project for the future
During the act, different speeches were organised regarding the history of the Royal Brass Factories, wherein individuals related to the study of the factory's history participated, such as Beatriz Fernández or Francisco Fuster, the founding partner of the Institute of Albacete Studies.

Next, a round table took place, moderated by Francisco Fuster, with Gracia Dorel, manager of the International Committee for the Preservation of Industrial Heritage; Miguel Ángel Álvarez Areces, president of the committee in Spain; Pedro J. Ripoll Vivancos, and Eduardo Martínez López, president of the Almadén-Francisco Javier de Villegas Foundation.

The president of the Almadén-Francisco Javier Villegas Foundation showed the experience and work in recuperation efforts, and recognition of Almadén's historical industrial heritage in the Mining Park project, as a first step in adding value and the social-economic development of the environment.
