The exhibition hall 'José Hernández' of Fuente Álamo dressed yesterday to open the exhibition 'Isaac Peral, a universal sailor', which collects 150 pieces intimately related to the scientist and military Cartagena, the private collection of Diego Quevedo, who also shares with Peral belonging to the Spanish Navy.
The mayor of Fuente Alamo, Antonio Jesus Garcia Conesa, said that "we are facing an exceptional collection, which comes from the hand of the world's best-known peralist, and teaches us creativity and everything that the figure of the Cartagena genius entailed".
A hundred fountain-lovers could see the treasures of an exhibition that will be available for your visit until next April 7.
The Diego Quevedo is considered one of the best private collections on Isaac Peral, and collects many of the commemorative objects that were marketed in Spain when the invention was announced, which aroused a wave of citizen enthusiasm.
After the inauguration, Diego Quevedo himself offered a talk at the Agrarian Chamber of Fuente Álamo, where he threw away his collection on Isaac Peral, giving a global point of view to the exhibition.
Among the exhibits, there are chromos, musical scores composed in honor of the inventor, press of the time, screenplays of films and theater, and even the design of a 50 pesetas bill with the effigy of Peral, which finally the Bank of Spain did not get put into circulation.
You can also see original photos of the submarine and its creator, manuscripts or posters of the time.
