Thematic areas and explanatory panels

There are eleven thematic areas, numbered consecutively along the linear route that the logistics of the room suggests. The first area begins next to the benches in front of the screen; the route begins from right to left and then changes to left to right after thematic group number 6. Each thematic area combines different exhibition resources, such as a large panel with the number and title of the theme in large format and, related to this, display cabinets and plinths with materials, models, murals, television images, etc.
