Intended for all types of audiences, the workshops provide participants with historical knowledge by teaching them about crafts. At the same time, our goal is to draw attention towards the potential offered by our cultural heritage and the challenges it is now facing, as well as the impact held by passing it on to others.

SextoMario is made up of professionals who have earned university degrees in Art History, History and Archeology. They possess excellent backgrounds with training on the history and archeology of Cordoba. They also have a great deal of experience in the field of teaching, which allows them to offer those whose take part in their workshops with extensive, diversified information on the history and archeology of our past, always in accordance with the level of the people participating. SextoMario was created because of a calling to teach History in a fun and entertaining way, without setting aside the basic contents that form part of our values and culture, through a broad catalogue of educational workshops and games. With this focus, the workshops strengthen skills such as paying attention, memory, psychomotor skills and coordination, while youths learn about a wide range of aspects from our past and, in turn, reflect about our present.

    The musicians’ bottle is one of the most unique pieces in the permanent collection of Cordoba’s Archeology Museum. Dating back to the tenth century, this ceramic bottle is characterized by its pictorial representation of musicians and minstrels, in what appears to be a Moorish “zambra” performance.

    The string, percussion and wind instruments represented on this beautiful bottle speak to us of the beats, rhythms and sounds of our tradition.

    At this workshop, we will be discussing music in Al-Andalus, and those attending will get the chance to decorate a ceramic reproduction of this piece with our own version of the musicians portrayed on it.
